The features of Twitter without compromising your ethics
Powered by Mastodon, WMD Social gives you the benefits of Twitter without all the evil. No algorithms or ads to waste your time. Follow anyone across any Mastodon server from a single account and receive their posts in chronological order, and make your corner of the internet a little more like you.

Mastodon puts decision making back in your hands.

Join a server with the rules you agree with, or host your own.
