Welcome to Mastadon. Get an overview of what Mastodon is. We know that it can be tricky to make sense of what exactly Mastadon is and how to migrate from Twitter to Mastodon.
In this video, we’ll cover a number of core items.
First a little mourning of the loss of the Twitter community that was (even as imperfect as it was.)
How these different servers and the broader Fediverse work. We think there might be some great benefits to organizations there in the long run. Like owning your own data and content.
Then we’ll make sure you understand how to create an account and the basics of using the platform.
Wrapping it all up with some tools for migrating from Twitter and changing servers if you need to.
