And it is indeed a mere coincidence that I spent the last days looking at alternative social networks that are federated and decentralised, and all based on open source software. The following tweets describe a few of my impressions.
#Mastodon is a very friendly community that is remotely based on the old StatusNet open-source software. Does anyone remember Identica? You choose a server to create an account on, and can follow people from all connected (federated) instances.
You have fine-grained, but very concise control over where each post goes. Each post has a limit of 500 characters, and you can add a content warning, which will be the only thing initially displayed if you do. You can then choose to read the rest or not.
