As one of the main Mastodon developers, I can't promise you that Mastodon will be a complete and exact Twitter replacement for you, but it may fit your use-cases, at least it does for me.

Just keep in mind that it is not exactly the same thing, some core design decisions are different (there isn't an unique centrally-governed website, but many interconnected servers operated by different individuals and organizations) and thus the tradeoffs can be different as well.

While I personally don't think Mastodon should aim at being an exact replacement to Twitter, I do hope Mastodon can be useful to more people wanting an alternative to Twitter! And I know there are lots of room for improvement, on things we do know, and on things we don't.

Also keep in mind that Mastodon is developed by only two core developers payed through a non-profit funded through sponsorship, grants and donations, so please be patient!

Now would be the prime time for any Mastodon admins with servers capable of accepting new users and scaling up to submit them to joinmastodon.org

Oh look... New people! 👀
Howdy and welcome to #Mastodon 👋🤓

Don't forget to put something in your profile/bios. And be sure to do your #introductions post. Share as little or as much as your like. Um, maybe not too* much. 🤔

Oh! And #hashtags! ☝️ Don't forget hashtags if you want other people with similar interests to find you.

As for me... #food #coffee #WorkFromHome #bicycles #bikes #cycling #ebikes #TheAwkwardCyclist #NotATechie #CityLife #YellowThumbs #indoorplants #plants #hydroponics

FYI for newbies 

Twitter has algorithms to get you engaged. Mastodon does not. So in order to enjoy Mastodon you have to take some time to reach out and find content and follow folks that you enjoy. Don't expect Mastodon to send you random popular posts to keep you engaged, you have to curate your own feed. But this is good! It gives you control.

In moving away from Twitter (to Mastodon) the main thing I feel as though I might miss is Twitter as a news source. Problem solved...

Will occasionally toot out a playlist I enjoy while I code... here is my first (of hopefully many, but not overly spammy)...

Scratching an itch ? Removing ticks ? Maybe inspect the fur and skin to check there is nothing causing irritation.
