Bund.de is the official German government portal for doing government-related paperwork online.

They have now created their own Mastodon instance at social.bund.de which contains some official accounts. You can find them on the instance's directory page:

➡️ social.bund.de/explore (in German)

This is a really promising sign! The Fediverse can allow citizens to interact with public officials without having to give away personal data.

@FediFollows this instance exists for quite some time afaik. I follow some of them for more than half a year, iirc.

Anyways, you're right about that. It is a good sign and I hope more accounts will be created there. We don't need twitter and meta to provide us "social" experiences.
