But how do I USE (You need a client)

You, my friend, need a CLIENT. is just a network protocol - you need something that speaks the language. Here are my suggestions:

Quick-and-effective: just use the web UI that came with your server account.

It works in mobile and desktop browsers and should let you do most things you want, like post, reply, and even upload images.
Desktop Clients:
I use Linux and sometimes Mac, so I like Pumpa ( and Dianara ( You can even get clients in Windows. Check out the full list of desktop clients at How-To Guide
Mobile Clients:
I use Android most of the time, so I recommend getting either Impeller ( or Puma. Both are available from the F-Droid store. Impeller is also available on Google Play.
For iOS, there is “Social Monkeys” - it's not free, but it's worth the small amount of money it costs: in the Terminal
“p”: the Python/ equivalent of “t” (for Twitter, written in Ruby), you can check your activity stream and inbox, send messages, reply to messages, post images, etc. I love this. And Your Language - it's a client thing

Many people mistake the Web UI Client that comes bundled with a server with They are not the same thing. The Web UI is a demonstrator client utilizing the vastly more flexible network underneath. Don't mistake the client for the protocol. For instance, the old flagship Statusnet instance, has a web UI that only supports English translations.
