Mastodon - microblogging

A GNU Social-compatible microblogging server.
Mastodon is a free, open-source social network server. A decentralized solution to commercial platforms, it avoids the risks of a single company monopolizing your communication. Anyone can run Mastodon and participate in the social network seamlessly.

Maybe https://pleroma.social/ could be an alternative to Mastodon
Pleroma is a microblogging server software that can federate (= exchange messages with) other servers that support the same federation standards (OStatus and ActivityPub). What that means is that you can host a server for yourself or your friends and stay in control of your online identity, but still exchange messages with people on larger servers. Pleroma will federate with all servers that implement either OStatus or ActivityPub, like GNU Social, Friendica, Hubzilla and Mastodon.
How is it different from Mastodon?
If you are currently using Mastodon, you are probably interested in the differences between Mastodon and Pleroma. Here are some of the big ones.
Lower system requirements.
Less moving parts.
Compatible with Mastodon clients (including the Mastodon frontend).
