I'm one of those freakish people that start listening to holiday music 🎄☃️🎶 a couple of weeks before Thanksgiving. If you are like me and want some holiday tunes to jam to, I have a playlist of non-traditional indie/alt/new wave tunes here:

And, if for some reason, you ❤️❤️❤️Last Christmas, I have a playlist that's 16 hours of versions of the song 😱

If you want to see Mastodon at its best, strongly recommend these options:

:android: Android - Use apps Tusky or Fedilab

:apple_inc: iPhone/iPad - Use apps Metatext or Toot!

💻 Computers - Log in through your server's website

Mastodon was designed for websites and third party apps. These are *still* the best ways to use Mastodon!

(Official app exists because new people were only looking for an official app in app stores, and giving up when they didn't find one. You don't need to use it!)

This literature clock is the most wonderful thing I’ve seen in a long time. Checking the time becomes a moment of pure joy 😍

PLEASE BOOST: Right now Mastodon is only receiving appr. $21,000/month through Patreon.

This is not enough to handle the 1 million new accounts that will be made this week.

Currently, only 4,720 patrons are donating to Mastodon.

However, if everyone chips in $2/month, this will ensure the continued survival of Mastodon!

Be a hero! Donate now!

Others have said this but since there are a lot of new arrivals I will keep saying it (for I have been here for a whole two weeks now and am very wise): there is no algorithm here. Boosting is the algorithm. The more you boost, the more cool stuff everyone gets to see. BOOST AWAY! BOOST BOOST BOOST

Maybe time for an #introduction ?

For those of you moving over from the and hoping to connect with friends, this site is pretty amazing at helping you easily find and follow them.

If you are new to #mastodon, migrating from #twitter and you love to post videos, please consider posting your video over at a hosting site such as Youtube or Vimeo (others exist). Then post the link, it should show and play in your Toot.
It saves your server from having to store and stream huge quantities of extra data.

I will give big points to the first news organization, big or small, that:
* Sets up an instance for its newsroom,
* Sets up an instance for the community it serves,
* Enables rel=me for staff,
* Creates a boost-on-Mastodon sharing function,
* Enhances that function so headlines/images (with alt-text) appear in the toot,
* Covers the Fediverse as more than a geeky curiosity or alt-Twitter,
* Listens to and joins in the conversation here.
