Seeing as we have so many new users the past few weeks, let me mention that development of Mastodon and hosting of mastodon.social is not funded by venture capital or ads, but through crowdfunding:

patreon.com/mastodon

and

opencollective.com/mastodon

And for certain tiers of support, your name or your company's logo is listed on our sponsors page:

joinmastodon.org/sponsors

@Gargron Someone can explain to me what exactly Patreon is?

Follow

@francesco Like recurring donations, sometimes with rewards
