Now that Meta has launched a Twitter competitor called “Threads” based on the ActivityPub protocol (and thus becoming part of the Fediverse), I find Mastodon quite interesting again.

Mastodon is also a Twitter alternative, free, open-source, and decentralized. And it too operates on the ActivityPub protocol. In theory, this means Mastodon users could potentially communicate with Threads users. But we’ll have to wait and see as Meta hasn’t activated this feature yet.

After some earlier trials, I have now set up a serious instance; planetearth.social. This time with the right hardware and in the right place (NorthC Datacenter). I’m committing to the Mastodon Server Covenant to provide a safe haven for anyone who doesn’t have a Mastodon account yet. And of course, the server has been given a sustainable touch. ­čî┐
