Comments about Mastodon as a Alternative to X
Many people are moving to mastodon due to being centralised the Twitter basket with eggs is beginning to crack.7
A better version of what Gab was trying to do. Federation is built into its core, so communities of users can be created, but the Fediverse has you covered. Everyone is linked together so long as they don't break the rules. No censorship, good content, and nice people. Great alternative!6
Its open source and federated0
I will suggest Mastodon as an alternative to X, if you search an application that works like X without the X people, ads and other sus stuff specific to X that you really don't need.0
No corpo greedy BS like a certain billionaire did with Twitter...4

Comments about Diaspora as a Alternative to X
I think Mastodon is the best alternative to Twitter. But, Diaspora is like a more complete Twitter, closer to what Facebook should be like.2
Diaspora is a network, not a single service. You can run your own service ("pod"), and still follow users from other pods in the network, and like and comment on their posts.5
Diaspora is a Facebook alternative, it's not Twitter-like22
decentralized and easy to use1
because you can type what you want and they won't ban you for it!-4

Comments about Pleroma as a Alternative to X
A light-weight decentralized alternative for microblogging.1
Pleroma is part of the OStatus fediverse and the ActivityPub fediverse. Your service is only one out of many, and you can interact with users running SocialHome, Mastodon, Pleroma, PixelFed, PeerTube and other services, and like and comment on their content. If you don't like how your service is run, you can run your own and still be part of the same networks.0
Interface similar to Twitter, interacts with the Fediverse, better moderation tools than Mastodon.1
