7 Best Mastodon Server Instances To Join From Twitter Emigrants

Leaving Twitter after Elon Musk takeover? Well, you are not alone. Many users have decided to leave Twitter for a different platform.

Whether or not you leave the platform completely is up to you. However, if you are looking for an alternative, Mastodon is the one you should choose.

What is the mastodon?

However, choosing the right community is essential, such as each server has different rules, guidelines and preferences.

To help you save time, I recommend some of the best (or most popular) Mastodon servers you can join for a good experience without any particular ranking order.

Unlike other social media platforms, Mastodon servers are mostly community powered. Therefore, we encourage you to donate/help the server admins continue enjoying the platform.

1. Phosstodon

At the time of writing, Mas.to has temporarily suspended accepting new user registrations to increase server capacity. You may want to keep an eye on this.

  • Are Mastodon servers privacy friendly?

    Yes, Mastodon is designed in such a way that no advanced algorithms collect any form of data to deliver you advertisements.

    For the rest, the server administrator has access to the data you provide to them when registering and other general statistics (number of posts, likes, IP address, email, etc.). Therefore, you can choose to use VPN or Tor services and various other privacy tools to keep your identity anonymous.

    You may want to check the privacy policy for the server you intend to join.

  • Does Mastodon allow NSFW content?

    Some servers do and some don’t. You must read the rules and regulations of the server.

    There is a feature to mark content as sensitive, which gives users a warning before they try to see your post.

  • What happens when a Mastodon server is no longer available?

    Considering Mastodon servers are run by individuals, there may be issues for some.

    If you want to get ready for d-day, you can always use the account options to switch to another account (or switch between accounts).

    Find it below Account → Account settings → Switch to (or from) another account
