Tŵt is the independent, non-profit, community-led social network for Wales and the Welsh, at home and abroad.

Covenant

Our promise to you: Tŵt will:

  1. Be available in Welsh and English
  2. Safeguard your privacy and keep you safe from bullying and harassment
  3. Be free of charge and never accept advertising fees

Follow friends and discover new ones. Publish anything you want: posts, links, pictures, videos. All on a network that is community-owned and community-run.

Welsh focus: community moderated. All new members are welcome but our focus in on Wales and the Welsh around the world. No global corporation can reflect our values, our language, our customs and values better than we can ourselves.

Privacy controls: Tŵt ensures you can follow and be followed by the people you choose. Your messages (“toots”) can be seen by everyone or only the people you choose. Full account deletion is always available, and you can download every ounce of everything you’ve ever shared.

Community Standards: Tŵt comes with effective anti-abuse tools to help you protect yourself online. There are moderators you can approach for personal help, and we offer a clear code of conduct.

Language equality: Our interface is 100% available in Welsh and English. If your computer or mobile device is set to Welsh, your Tŵt experience will be in Welsh. (Other languages are also available.)

No data mining, no corporate control. Tŵt allows you to consume the content you enjoy without interruption. Your feed is chronological and non-algorithmic – you decide who and what you want to see!
