Yesterday I found the nightly builds of Weechat Android on the Play Store -- it seems rather bug-free and much more stable connection-wise than both the "non-nightly" release and Glowing Bear.

Setting up a Mastodon instance & connecting it to the #Fediverse was impressively easy. The only thing worth mentioning is that you might want to check out if you're using Ruby 2.4.1 with Mastodon 1.1.2.
