GoToSocial is a microblogging service and one of the Fediverse's replacements for Twitter.
It is just a server though, without a frontend, which means you have to use Tusky or Pinafore to use it.

What does GoToSocial feel like?

Since you use it with Tusky or Pinafore it feels exactly like Mastodon when using one of these apps.
There are just a few little differences.

What are some advantages over Twitter, Mastodon & Co?

With GoToSocial you have a character limit of 5000 by default - the admin can change that.
Same goes for the default limit for poll options (6) and other limits.
