Welcome to AspieChattr! As well as being a community for NDs, we’re part of the fediverse meaning we connect to other social networks dedicated to many other niches and users from all of them can seamlessly follow and talk to each other. Check out the “local” tab for posts by our members and the “federated” tab for posts by people from across the “fediverse”
