What is torontomusic.cloud?

A social network for Toronto music folks: artists, bands, presenters, independent media, concertgoers, collaborators, DJs, producers, music sharers, venues, indie record labels, and whoever else wants to join. There are no ads, and no algorithms. All your followers will see your posts here, and you won't miss any posts by your favourite people.

Mastodon is a new open-source Twitter alternative that's beginning to get popular in Japan and France. It's a bit basic compared with established social networks, but it's brand-new. There's a community of volunteer developers working on it and it's getting better every day.

For now, torontomusic.cloud will use the policies of the main English-language Mastodon network, mastodon.social. In the future these will be determined by the users of torontomusic.cloud, but many of them seem unlikely to change.
