In the sidebar you can see a panel titled “Toots by @mccuneware”. I’ve set myself up a mastodon instance. Mastodon is a federated social netork. Its a lot like twitter, except instead of a walled garden owned by one company, multiple server instances can be run by multiple owners, all exchanging traffic. This means nobody can kick you off of your mastodon server in the way that twitter can suspend or delete your account if you don’t think right-thoughts. Sure, any given server can decide to not exchange data with yours, but your server is still serving your content. Content which are messages called toots instead of tweets.

My mastodon instance is over at geekstream, but you need a mastodon account. I’m @mccuneware@geekstream.org if you want to follow me. Or you can just read my toots here in the sidebar or on the toots page.
