Mastodon has gained 106,723 monthly active users since the end of March (when Elon bought 9.2% of Twitter's shares). 93,603 are new accounts. Overall that's a 42% increase in Mastodon's MAU.

I'm Nathan and I run several podcasts about #WordPress...
I live in the UK and would love to connect with anyone at all, but I guess if you're into WordPress, that might be a good place to start.
I like pretty much all forms of music, but #folk is kinda a proclivity.
I run a Mastodon server at https://wpbuilds.social if you'd be interesting in joining that, which is erm... about WordPress!
Fancy some nice FREE UI / UX tips and advice from Piccia Neri — @firstname.lastname@example.org? Well, you can in about 30 minutes over at the WP Builds UI / UX show. Also, there’s some Dark Patterns as well!! See you there: http://bit.ly/3LyFBxP
As one of the main Mastodon developers, I can't promise you that Mastodon will be a complete and exact Twitter replacement for you, but it may fit your use-cases, at least it does for me.
Just keep in mind that it is not exactly the same thing, some core design decisions are different (there isn't an unique centrally-governed website, but many interconnected servers operated by different individuals and organizations) and thus the tradeoffs can be different as well.
While I personally don't think Mastodon should aim at being an exact replacement to Twitter, I do hope Mastodon can be useful to more people wanting an alternative to Twitter! And I know there are lots of room for improvement, on things we do know, and on things we don't.
Also keep in mind that Mastodon is developed by only two core developers payed through a non-profit funded through sponsorship, grants and donations, so please be patient!
I podcast over at WP Builds and WP Tavern, and love to drone on about WordPress!
