The end of the year with problems for Twitter: the users are accusing the platform of “censorship” and migrate in mass to Mastodon

This week Twitter Spain is full of criticism towards the own social network: users accuse the platform of the blue bird of a strong and growing censorship and they cry out to be fed up with the accounts, so you have started a movement under the hashtag #YoMigroAMastodon.Mastodon is not a new phenomenon: he was born in 2016, although had its biggest boom in Spain until now in October 2018. Currently has about half a million users.Mastodon is a social network microblogging free and based in free software. The idea is very similar to Twitter -users can have a profile, ‘post’ messages, surveys, photos, and videos and follow others-but unlike this platform Mastodon “is decentralized”, that is to say, “there is no company or person behind” who has “total control”.And how does it work? it Is a decentralized federation of servers running open source software, something that comes to mean in English, the users are scattered in different communities but under one and the same ‘fediverso’ -play of words between the federation and the universe – that allows them to interact with each other.Each community is managed by managers, usually their creator, and decide to use policies or accounts allowed. In addition, they regulate the interactions with other communities. Mastodon only accepts communities “committed against the racism, sexism, and transphobia”.“itNo advertising, without surveillance, corporate, design, ethical and decentralization! I Know the owner of your data with Mastodon”, claims the platform in his Twitter account. The only data collected is the email and a password.And if you are one of those that gives you laziness to try new things, don’t worry: it won’t cost you much familiar as everything is exactly the same as that on Twitter. Instead of ‘retweet’ what you do will be ’retootear’, because the ‘twit’ is called ‘toot’. And you have 500 characters to tell the world. In this video I explain a little more about the operation of the Mastodon:
