I Joined Mastodon!

As I continue to diversity my social media presence, I was advised to check out Mastodon, a platform with several different servers that is volunteer-run and has a similar user feel to Twitter.

I’m still feeling everything out, but I love that Mastodon reminds me to add alt text to photos to help those using screen readers engage with my content, and they make it really easy to add warnings or censor things that my followers might find triggering.

They also have an edit button and mods who actually respond if someone is engaging in harassment.

If you’re on Mastodon, you can follow me at this link!

Even if we aren’t on the same server, we can interact and share content. I’ve made some really fantastic connections with the neurodivergent community over there, and I look forward to learning more from the folks I’ve met.
