Some questions about Mastodon

At the moment, I post to my links to various places. Facebook and Twitter as they happen, and then daily to Dreamwidth, Livejournal, and WordPress (which I did mostly to see if I could).

Anyway! Someone is leaving Twitter, and asked if I posted to Mastodon*. A twitter-style site, but decentralised and open source. And I know _nothing_ about it. However, I've done a bit of looking around, I've found a few different tools that look like they can take RSS and turn it into posts.

But! I don't have a lot of time for doing research right now**, so if any of you know what would be a good place to use as a Mastodon host, or what would be a good way to run the RSS->Post machine, then chime in.

*Which, by the way, gave me a lovely warm glow. If you ever want to make me happy, feel free to tell me you liked a particular link. Or the links in general.
**Absolutely not a complaint, I am loving having Sophia on me lots.
