Mastodon isn’t just a website, it is a federation—think Star Trek. Thousands of independent communities running Mastodon form a coherent network, where while every planet is different, being part of one is being part of the whole.
Mastodon comes with effective anti-abuse tools to help protect yourself. Thanks to the network's spread out and independent nature there are more moderators who you can approach for personal help, and servers with strict codes of conduct.
You have 500 characters. You can adjust the thumbnails of your pictures with focal points. You can use custom emojis, hide things behind spoiler warnings and choose who sees a given post. Messed it up? You can delete & redraft for quick corrections.
Without an incentive to sell you things, Mastodon allows you to consume content you enjoy uninterrupted. Your feed is chronological, ad-free and not controlled by algorithms—you decide what you want to see!

We are a United States-based liberal/progressive instance that promotes elections, activism, and voter participation, in particular for the Democratic party and left-leaning Independents. We encourage people to participate in government by petitioning to their elected officials as well as participating in events, marches, and protests. We provide information on how to do those things effectively and about candidates for office.
We share news related to those subjects. We also toot about personal interests like any other community in the Fediverse.
We are not an instance for anarchists as we find that it runs contrary to our values of a government that works for all people. Symbols and toots promoting anarchy will be removed from the community.
