@switchingsocial Great video for promotion. It not only explains what Mastodon is, but the animation exemplifies the individuality of instances and the occupants.

I would like to give a great shout of tootful joyful applause to @dopatwo for the amazing artwork. The style is amazing and I will be on the look out for your other works to experience.
