Social networking, back in your hands

Follow friends and discover new ones among more than 2.2M people. Publish anything you want: links, pictures, text, video. All on a platform that is community-owned and ad-free.

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.

Sharing your thoughts has never been more convenient

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.

Mastodon for the individual

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!

Code of Conduct

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.

The following guidelines are not a legal document, and final interpretation is up to the administration of resistance.social; they are here to provide you with an insight into our content moderation policies:

Cross-posting

"Cross-posting" is the automatic copying of posts from one platform to another. That definition does not include the simultaneous posting to multiple platforms from the same app, such as Twidere or PostyBirb. If you use those apps, we consider those posts original, and the following need not apply.

Cross-posting from Mastodon to other platforms is fully permitted. Cross-posting into Mastodon from another platform is permitted under the following terms:

  1. The posts do not include platform-specific references, e.g. talking about "here" meaning Twitter, or including text from other non-Mastodon users verbatim (e.g. cross-posted quote tweets)
  2. The account is at least semi-regularly monitored by the author, so that interactions from Mastodon users are not ignored
  3. The account being cross-posted is owned by the same person. Third-party copying of content is not permitted
