@privacytools is shuting down their Mastodon instance (for now), so I'm moving to !

I'm an amateur, freelance writer predominantly covering privacy. I'm also a team member at PrivacyTools, amongst other things.

This account might not last that long on this instance, but I'm happy to be here.

Sending you my standard greeting for noobs. You might find it helpful.

Welcome to Fosstodon. Things are slow at first but as you find people with similar interests and follow them, others will follow you. Create your bio, add an avatar pic and some emojis to your name so others can learn more about you. If you haven't, sending out an introduction listing your interests will help.

The custom emoji list is here:

Good luck and have fun.

@freddy @privacytools Welcome to Fosstodon! No matter how potentially short lived your account is I hope you enjoy your time here.

Welcome. Just curious: why did privacytools shutdown their Mastodon instance?

@ScottMortimer they haven't yet, and it won't be a permanent shut down. All will be explained shortly...

Welcome!
Nice to have you with us! New here? Start with following some tags and people! Go check out public stream on your server to find some. Keep adding more people and tags, you can always unfollow something you don't want later.

Also do share your own stuff - write posts, upload images and add relevant tags so similar-minded people can easily find it. Consider filling out your profile as well, no personal data required. Any questions? Don't hesitate to ask, we are here to help.

Have fun on the network! :)
@freddy What happened to the PrivacyTools instance?

@MindOfJoe its set to be shut down in due course. But more on that later...
