As Mastodon’s popularity has grown, security researchers are taking a closer look at it and have begun to identify vulnerabilities and other security concerns.
Elon Musk made a number of significant changes to Twitter after he bought the company, including firing employees and changing features, which had a detrimental effect on the platform’s security. A Twitter security chief resigned as a result, and the FTC expressed grave concern.
Mastodon is not owned by a single company, unlike Twitter, despite having a user interface that is similar to Twitter. It is an open source programme for managing independently hosted social networking services.
