Should you use mastodon for sensitive info? Hell no! At least, not unless you're running your own instance, and you know what you're doing.

But you also shouldn't use facebook or twitter for sensitive info! You don't control those platforms either.

We need a nice icon for the Mastodon Federation to use on our conference site, where can we find one?

INTRO TO FEDERATION:

1. "mastodon" is a piece of software that runs on a server. There's a lot of servers that run it & u can follow ppl on other servers.

2. When u follow someone from another server, your server receives their toots.

3. The federated TL is all public toots that the server receives, ie all of the toots from everyone that ppl on your server follow.

4. ERGO: if u want to see more toots in the fed TL, follow + get other ppl on your server to follow ppl from other servers!

Welcome back Canonical! Ubuntu 18.04 LTS to ship with #GNOME by default! #WeAreGNOME

PSA: If you are in the web view of a remote instance of some user or toot, you cannot directly reply/boost/fav.

But you can copypaste the URL into your local Mastodon server's "Search" field, then it allows you to interact!

Wasn't obvious to me, so maybe boost this if it helped you. :)

I want to recommend Mastodon instances to people who suffer from online abuse. Does anyone know which instances have friendly codes of conduct / terms of service?

So, we are currently invading mastodon.social on two fronts - French social media, and the migration of #infosec from twitter :P

We should probably make @Gargron 's life easier and help the guy out; patreon.com/user?u=619786

Please boost! (it's the new RT, right?)
