If you're new to Mastodon and have half an hour to read about it, here are several resources. Start from the top and go as far down as you are interested in!
I'll update as I find more quality -
A few lessons to pass along from 2011 btw:
* Your advice posts on Mastodon are not being read by people who are at the riots
* Those who are there won't be checking their phone. (In fact, it is probably out of battery or deliberately switched off)
* Be wary of any information you read on social media during the riots
* Don't post "urgent information" you've been told to copy and paste. It will definitely be wrong and it will definitely scare the crap out of your followers
