The Mastodon code base is open source under the AGPLv3 license, and because of this anyone can create and modify their own instance.

Hello, World. This is the first post on the Lunadon instance of Mastodon. Mastodon is a Twitter-like, federated social network with an open source code base. Unlike centralized social networks which are run by a single instance, Mastodon is a collection of separately run instances that can all inter-operate with each other through the W3C standardized ActivityPub protocol, allowing you to communicate with users on other instances, creating a federated social network.
Retro tech and nostalgia.
