All of those are using the same ActivityPub protocol, so they can
communicate with one other.
So a Pleroma user can talk to a Mastodon user and vice versa, unless a
server admin decides to ban an entire instance, which is a feature that
should have never been implemented in the first place.

Mitra is the easiest to install, since it's just a .deb file, but you'll
be vendor locked into Debian 12 (yes, specifically version 12) and
But it is recommended to install a Monero node as well to make full use
of its features, but it's optional.

I'm aware of GoToSocial and honk. as well, but these feel more like
personal echo chambers.
And GoToSocial specifically even makes it very clear that they are
unwilling to work with anyone who the developer disagrees with
politically (of course using slurs to justify it) in their religious
document, so you can write them off as a lost cause:

90% of all emails sent on a daily basis are being sent in plain text, and it's super easy to intercept emails as they flow over the internet?
Never send passwords, tokens, personal information, or other volunerable information without proper PGP encryption!

If you're writing your emails unencrypted, please consider sending PGP encrypted emails for security reasons.
You can find my PGP public key at:

Every good email client is able to send encrypted emails.
If yours can't, then you should consider switching to a secure email client, because yours just sucks.

My recommendations are Claws Mail or NeoMutt.
