Mastodon is a software suite that works as an online social network. Users can write and share messages, notes, pictures, links and anything that fits in 500 characters. These messages (called toots in Mastodon's jargon) are then accessible to any of the user's followers. Users can control who can follow them and who they want to follow, and there is no required reciprocity - i.e, you can follow someone even if they don't follow you back.

Mastodon is similar in functionality to Twitter, with the very important distinction that there can be many different Mastodon sites on the internet and you can follow users from any of those.
