Woo! As you may have seen from that previous boost, Mastodon 2.9 is now out, featuring a new single column interface:
This is, IMHO, a huge step forward for getting non-technical people onto Mastodon 👍
Instead of the Tweetdeck-style interface, there's now a default single-column timeline which is much less scary.
(The multicolumn original is still an option in Settings, and those who currently use multicolumn will continue to see it by default.)

Manyverse is available from @fdroidorg and Google Play, and there's an iOS version on the way:

Recently, we made the logos for #Mastodon, #Hubzilla and more available in CodiMD; We switched from #FontAwesome to #ForkAwesome which provides many more icons (especially of open source projects)! We're also working on better integration for them 😉
Feel free to try it out on https://demo.codimd.org and give some feedback either here or directly on GitHub or our Matrix channel!
