Learn from other Autistic people and find them on social media

Facebook, Mastodon, Twitter, Reddit, Instagram, Discord and TikTok are all Autistic hangouts. We tend to use the same hashtags across different platforms, so be sure to check out our list below.


Since Elon Musk bought Twitter things have become chaotic on that social media platform to say the least. Many autistic people have decided to join Mastodon as a Twitter alternative. It is run by volunteers, not corporations or billionaires. Accounts are free and it doesn’t matter what server you create an account on. You can learn more at fedi.tips.

You can find me on Mastodon at @[email protected]. đź’›

You can join Mastodon by signing up here. Find any server that has a ‘Create account’ button that looks interesting and register your account. It does not matter which server you signup with, you will still be able to communicate and follow anyone.

I built a Neurodivergent Mastodon List form so it makes it easy to find other autistic people. Please consider adding your handle there so others can find you and add you to their Follow List.
