If you're looking for an alternative to Twitter, you should give Mastodon a try.

With Mastodon, you can access a huge and decentralized community built with protecting your privacy and safety in mind. Millions of users are already registered and waiting for you to join them. No matter your interests, with Mastodon, you can find other people who enjoy the same things.

Mastodon is ad-free and offers a chronological timeline so you won't miss a thing that happens between your contacts. Interact and express yourself with custom emoji, text, GIFs, images, and more. You can use up to 500 characters to say everything that's on your mind. In Mastodon, you can find interesting accounts to follow, explore hashtags, respond, and even reblog. This app has all the features you know and love on Twitter, now with a more user-focused experience.

For example, Mastodon lets you limit your posts so they can only be seen or shared by certain parties. You can also include content warnings or avoid posts with sensitive material to improve your experience on the app. The communities on Mastodon also have their own rules, as well as tools for protecting their members.

Mastodon is a non-profit organization kept alive by the donations of its users. For all these reasons, this is, without a doubt, a great option for a social network. Download the APK here.
