I'm trying Mastodon. According to the Mastodon Wikipedia page,
The service is interoperable with the federated social network GNU social and other OStatus platforms.
Now Pidgin has the Twitter Protocol plugin that claims to work with Status.net as well (Which became GNU Social), but when set to use my Mastodon account, it just crashed Pidgin.
Is it maybe that I'm just missing some settings that could make this work, or there is no way to get Pidgin to work with Mastodon?
