Collection of quotes about Mastodon

This post is a collection of quotes about Mastodon (initially released in 2016). There are 3 quotes listed below. License: CC BY-SA 4.0


1. "Mastodon is a free and open-source software for running self-hosted social networking services. It has microblogging features similar to Twitter." (Wikipedia: Mastodon, 1.14.24 UTC 00:56)


2. "Users join a specific Mastodon server, rather than a single centralized website or application. The servers are connected as nodes in a network, and each server can administer its own rules, account privileges, and whether to share messages to are from other servers. Many servers have a theme based on a specific interest." (Wikipedia: Mastodon, 1.14.24 UTC 00:56)


3. "Mastodon is powered by the ActivityPub protocol, making it part of the Fediverse... A Mastodon user can therefore interact with users on any other server in the Fediverse that supports ActivityPub." (Wikipedia: Mastodon, 1.14.24 UTC 00:56)
