Wolf Howl is a Mastodon instance which particularly caters to members of the alterhuman community, including, but not limited to: otherkin, fictionkin, therians, vampires, plural systems, furries, and the other hearted.
Mastodon is an open-source federated social networking platform. This means that users of Wolf Howl can interact with users of other social networking sites powered using similar technology. The interface is very similar to Twitter and other micro-blogging services. However, unlike Twitter, we allow 500-character awoos (instead of tweets), advanced privacy options are supported as well.
