While we’ve had a huge influx of pro-independence supporters be mindful this instance is for all Scots, even those with different views. Please be respectful of others’ beliefs. We’ll always have to share Scotland whatever happens!

Hello, #Scotland! A brief #introduction: I'm a long time Mastodon user and a moderator at another instance, and because of my interest support for Scottish independence, I've volunteered to help with the moderation here. I'd be glad to help answer any questions you have as you get settled in.
Take a minute to look at this guide by @noelle which tells you how Mastodon is different from Twitter and shows you features you may not have noticed:
That feeling at the start of the night when you're having a quiet pint, pub isny too busy and the queue is non existent. You know it's gonny fill up soon, and the wankers will arrive when it does, but right now, it's just nice. That's what it's like on here just now. #twitterexodusscotland
