Mastodon uses the same technical standards as many other alternative social networks, so people on one network can follow people on others. This "network of networks" is called the Fediverse :fediverse:

✅ You can follow people from other parts of the Fediverse just like you would follow any Mastodon account!

Try it out for yourself:

@jett1oeil is an account on Instagram alternative PixelFed

@chriswere is an account on YouTube alternative PeerTube

@tokyotony Hugo @mastohost has explained it to me, and I completely misunderstood what the Federated Timeline was.

In short, only accounts that someone (anyone) follows on will show up in the Federated Timeline. Follow someone and their toots will show up for all on the Federated Timeline.

It is NOT a complete set of ALL toots from ALL the instances in the Fediverse. Not even close.

Windows Weekly is live with Paul Thurrot and Mary Jo Foley. Topic 1: Windows 10 X.

God bless America. Now let's get to work.

I woke up early. This is like Christmas morning for America.

:twit: It's time for MacBreak Weekly with Andy Ihnatko and Rene Ritchie.

It’s 80 degrees. Kind of unsettling in January. But I’ll take it.

MLK Day isn't just an opportunity to remember Dr King; it's also a moment to contest his legacy - to remember him for who he was, a radical anti-capitalist who believed that racism was a tool first and foremost for class oppression.

Thankfully, we have a wealth of primary and secondary King material online and open access, especially in the Internet Archive.


Just approved 30 new members at I wonder if there's a mini Twitter exodus mirroring the WhatsApp exodus.
