Testing (Moving To) Mastodon

Just a short update. I am testing Mastodon these days, to move away from Twitter. I don’t really like Twitter to begin with – as most people I am wary of centralization, ads, and the whole business model that goes with it. This is also why I host my own blog and don’t rely on Medium and other similar services. Mastodon is a federated, micro-blogging service like Twitter – you can even host your own instances if you wish.

Now, since we start with ZERO followers on Mastodon, if you are interested to follow us there, you can register to follow the account @boilingsteam@mastodon.cloud. I will probably use it to post short links of stuff I find interesting related to Linux Gaming, which should not deserve an article per se.

That’s it! Toot away!

EDIT: You may want to check out Tootle, a GNOME client, to access Mastodon. As far as I know there is no good KDE client for now, but there’s always this Electron app.

BoilingSteam lets you access our content for free, but writing articles is a constant investment. We don't use ads or sponsporship, help us make our activities sustainable by donating via Patreon or LiberaPay if you prefer it anonymous. You can follow what we do via our newsletter, our RSS feed, our Mastodon profile or our Twitter feed. We also have Peertube, Youtube and LBRY channels. If you'd like to chat, you can also find us on #boilingsteam:matrix.org. (what is Matrix?)
