Lightning fast client for Mastodon Source


Olifant is a client for the world’s largest free, open-source, decentralized microblogging network with real-time notifications and support for multiple accounts.

Mastodon is lovingly crafted with power and speed in mind, resulting in a free, independent, and popular alternative to the centralized social networks.

Anyone can run a Mastodon server. Each server hosts individual user accounts, the content they produce, and the content to which they are subscribed. Every user can follow each other and share their posts regardless of their server.
