To everyone joining right now:
Welcome to the fediverse. With your account on mastodon.online you get access to people from lots of other Mastodon servers (in fact, this message you're reading originates from mastodon.social!). You can follow people from these other servers and you can even move your account (incl. your followers) to another server. Beyond that server stuff the UI should be familiar enough, there's a lot of mobile apps.
@Gargron I personally use Tusky on Android. It does what I need, let's you use non-system emoji fonts and has an AMOLED dark mode!
@Gargron / Thank you so much for the warm welcome. We'll try not to cause too mymuch trouble, I promise. 🤞
@Gargron Can I use my Mastodon account on other fediverse social networks like Pixelfed?
I still don't know exactly what fediverse is
Server run by the main developers of the project It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
