Mastodon is an open-source, federated social media platform which can ably serve as a replacement for Twitter. No, Mastodon is not QUITE as easy to use (right now) as Twitter in some ways, but the core capabilities and functions of Mastodon are robust and very functional. Today, I created a 32 minute screencast tutorial video sharing several tips and strategies for using Mastodon.

All the referenced links from this screencast are available in this Wakelet. (Later I’ll link them individually here.)

I’ve added this video tutorial to my workshop resources for “Discovering Useful Ideas,” which I’ve been sharing at different conferences since 2016.
