What is Mastodon?
I recommend all new users give this 2 minute video a watch!
If you're new to the Fediverse, here's what made the platform work for me: aggressively following and unfollowing new people.
Whatever standards you've built up on Twitter for deciding to follow someone, throw them out the window. Follow someone because they made a funny or insightful post. Follow someone because their bio says they like pesto. Follow someone because they have a cute fursona. Anything really.
Following is free. And if it doesn't work out, unfollowing is also free.
Hello everyone and welcome to our (many) new users!
Mastodon might take a bit of getting used to but we hope you’ll feel at home very soon.
We work hard to make this instance a safe space for our users. If you see something that doesn’t look right you can use the ‘report’ facility to let our moderation team know.
Happy tooting! ☺️

Today my wife @daishin has to leave #Scotland to go back to #America, to apply for a visa to come back here and stay with me. She's not allowed to apply while in the UK. Why? The #HomeOffice gives no reason for the rule. It's cruelty for its own sake. And, as I wrote in this piece, we're the more fortunate ones.
