currently playing with Mastodon

Alexander Bochmann Sunday 21 of May, 2017
Mastodon is a federated microblogging platform that uses the OStatus protocol (amongst others), which allows it to talk to GNU Social / PostActiv / Friendica instances.

It's relatively easy to run your own instance, so I quickly set up one of them.

For the time being, I'm over there as @galaxis@mastodon.infra.de

Not yet sure if I'll move posting from this blog over there - probably I'll want to push posts from here into my Mastodon timeline instead. Since I'm running my own instance, it's the first service I'm relative comfortable to use via an app on my phone, so it's possible that I use the Mastodon account some more in the near future.
