mastodon.scot — a social network for Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

If you’re looking for an alternative to Twitter, you don’t need to look further than Mastodon. But, if you live or come from Scotland, then you might want to join your fellow country-folk on a social network for Scotland.

mastodon.scot is a bilingual online community, inviting Scottish folk to sign up and chat with the 1,500 other members of the site.

And, if you don’t know anyone on the site, you can always invite your friends or follow some of the 2 million people on the wider network – called the fediverse.

A Mastodon instance

mastodon.scot is based on the same technology as the social network that I run for the people of Oslo — oslo.town. Both sites are able to ‘talk’ to one another and members of oslo.town are able to follow and interact with members of mastodon.scot.

If you want to get to grips with Mastodon, but don’t live in either Scotland or Oslo, check out some of the Mastodon instances you can join.
