So if I want to "live" in one instance of Mastodon, but want to follow the stream of another instance, is that possible?

@DonnaLanclos Absolutely. If you can see a toot from someone you wanna follow, just click the person-shaped icon.

Otherwise, search for the person with their handle and instance (frex you are @DonnaLanclos) and add them.

Complication: some servers shun other servers. I've yet to have this be a problem though.

@DonnaLanclos gah display issue

you are @/DonnaLanclos@/scholar.social minus the slashes.

@dsalo so I have to know people's instances to search for them?

Follow

@DonnaLanclos @dsalo not necessarily if you know their name, e.g. you can search for dsalo and the interface should show all the dsalo people.
