Hello, Mastodon!

Warning: This post is over 365 days old. The information may be out of date.

After deleting my Twitter account, I’ve been doing some research about Mastodon and how it works. Suffice to say, I now have a Mastodon account over at tilde.zone!

My handle is: @ericswpark@tilde.zone

Quick tip for those joining: I was stuck on the choosing-a-server step for a very long time, until I realized account creation is a bit like creating an email account. You don’t really care whether someone has an email at Gmail, Yahoo, or their own self-hosted server. So just pick a server that has a content moderation policy and ideology you most agree/identify with and sign up there! And thanks to federation, you can always contact users on other servers, so don’t worry if you can’t sign up on a particular server.
