About Mastodon

If you are a business/enterprise sponsor and need invoices for tax purposes, you can sponsor Mastodon through our own portal (Gold tier and higher only)

I'm working on Mastodon, a free, open-source social network server based on the open web protocol ActivityPub. The social focus of the project is a viable decentralized alternative to commercial social media silos that returns the control of the content distribution channels to the people. The technical focus of the project is a good user interface, a clean REST API for 3rd party apps and robust anti-abuse tools.

The entire network is like an unlimited number of different Twitter websites, users of which can follow each other and interact regardless of which Twitter website exactly they are on. This has obvious benefits as there is no single company that has a monopoly.



The code of the project is available on GitHub. Besides the development of Mastodon itself, I maintain:

  • Mastodon server mastodon.social, currently hosting over 500,000 users
  • Mastodon server mastodon.online, currently hosting over 44,000 users
  • joinmastodon.org, the homepage of the project
  • docs.joinmastodon.org, the documentation for the project
By supporting this Patreon you help pay for the hosting and maintenance of the above resources, as well as the development of the project, expansion of the team and other related projects.
Goals
