Mastodon Mastodon hosted on bbq.snoot.com

Dear Friend,

I have created this Mastodon instance as a resource for people who work within and around the film and television industry. I'm not going to be enforcing that goal strictly, but I hope that people like you will keep this in mind as you're inviting friends to join. There are plenty of other public Mastodon instances like mastodon dot social out there for your non-industry friends, and you'll still be able to follow any of those people just like on Twitter. Also, please don't be intimidated by all the weird language that surrounds how Mastodon works. It's pretty self-explanatory when you start using it.

My hope is that Mastodon in general and bbq.snoot.com in specific will allow an alternative to Twitter. This should be a fun place for people to discuss film and filmmaking on the "local" timeline, and also access a broader social network via the "federated" timeline.

I will be actively pruning our member list to maintain a positive experience. For now, that means I will be a benevolent dictator when it comes to kicking out harassers, spammers, and other ne'er-do-wells. If this turns into a bigger task than I can handle, then I'll have to come up with a better long-term solution.

If you would like to join this Mastodon instance, then please email bbq@snoot.com and include a brief description of your involvement with the film and/or TV industries.

Love,
Keith

What is Mastodon?

Mastodon is a social network based on open web protocols and free, open-source software. It is decentralized like e-mail.

Administered by:

Built for real conversation
With 500 characters at your disposal and support for granular content and media warnings, you can express yourself the way you want to.
You’re a person, not a product
Mastodon is not a commercial network. No advertising, no data mining, no walled gardens. There is no central authority.
Always within reach
Multiple apps for iOS, Android, and other platforms thanks to a developer-friendly API ecosystem allow you to keep up with your friends anywhere.
A more humane approach
Learning from failures of other networks, Mastodon aims to make ethical design choices to combat the misuse of social media.
