For new people wondering why Mastodon is on thousands of servers instead of one:
-It helps protect us all against Elon Musk scenarios. It's very difficult for anyone to buy a network made of thousands of independently owned servers. (It's the same reason why no one owns the world's email network, because there are so many independent providers out there.)
-If your server misbehaves (or sells out to a malevolent billionaire), you can move your account to a different server, or even to a brand new server. Decentralisation means you're never trapped on a site you hate.
...and there are lots more good reasons too, to do with servers using alternative Fediverse software etc, but I'll save that for a future post 😁
What is the Fediverse?
Recently, I have upgraded the mstdn.social server to keep up with demand and provide a smooth social experience for you. ⚡
We excist to give you a fun, secure, community-owned platform that’s free of ads, tracking, data mining, and corporate overlords.
Anything you can do to help will be welcome and will go toward making mstdn even greater than ever!
