Ep.00008.en: Joining my first Mastodon instance

You know Twitter, right? But I’m not sure whether you know Mastodon or not. Its first release was in October 2016 and soon became popular in the tech scene. It’s a free and open-source self-hosted social networking service. It has microblogging features similar to Twitter.

Though I start using Twitter again in the middle of this year, in 2016, I already quit using Twitter, so I had no interest back then. Since I’ve been using “Micro.blog”, I found an article that shows how to enable ActivityPub support. I was digging into Mastodon instance, and I saw and joining Fosstodon, an English-speaking Mastodon instance open to anyone interested in technology, particularly free & open-source software.

I have no idea how to use Fosstodon efficiently right now. I will look for something I haven’t known about Mastodon under the id of @x5gtrn. Before that, I need to download some mobile apps and desktop apps for Mastodon and try them and pick up to use.

Ah, I made yet another not urgent task… But I want to do it sooner.
