Did you know you can follow hashtags on ?

Click a hashtag, then the follow button and you'll see them when you browse timelines.

Forgot which hashtags you follow? Go to Settings -> Relationships -> Hashtags to view all the hashtags you follow.

Good Morning!

Discovered a spammer had sent hundreds of DMs on pixelfed.social to local users.

Since we filter out DMs from accounts you don't follow, no notifications were sent and impacted very few users.

We have removed like counts from Discover, Hashtag and Profile pages.

Like counts on posts will be replaced with "Liked by" and the count will only be visible to the status owner in our next release.

imagine bragging for years (decades?) about how good you are at management and running a company and then decimating your team over the course of a week, lmfao

Hey people new to Mastodon!

Did you know that Mastodon is part of a wider network called the Fediverse?

These (and more) are on the Fediverse too:

PixelFed - an Instagram alternative (pixelfed.org)

PeerTube - a YouTube alternative (joinpeertube.org)

WriteFreely - a blogging platform like Medium (writefreely.org)

Lemmy - a Reddit alternative (join.lemmy.ml)

You can follow Fediverse accounts from Mastodon, because Fediverse platforms talk to each other.

I am happy to reveal that a non-profit legal entity for Mastodon, Mastodon gGmbH, is in the process of being entered into the German company register.

For context, I have been operating as a sole proprietor so far.

It's been in the works for 8 months but I didn't want to announce anything until everything was finalized just in case it didn't work out. Yesterday, I paid in the starting capital.

It wouldn't be possible without the help and advice of @mellifluousbox. More to follow in blog form.

It's been a while since I've last given an update on Resin, but just today, I managed to finish implementing the UI. It definitely has some kinks that still need to be worked out but I don't expect the look to be changing much going forward!

Talking & connecting is a basic human need, so why should we allow our online interaction to be seized by companies that (by commercial design) are after personal data? Especially for public services like national/European administration citizens deserve to connect in a way that serves them, instead of data-hungry third parties.

NGI Zero is happy to announce a series of webinars and a workshop organized together with the #ActivityPub-community & #fediverse-devs on April 19, 26 and 29.

You can now opt-out on FediDB!

This will prevent your instance from being crawled or searchable on .
