How does Mastodon fit together? :thinkerguns:

"Home" TL shows your follows' toots plus whatever toots they boost.

Local TL is for THIS Mastodon server. We're on the main one. It has 463K users. It's admined by Eugen aka @ Gargron (in your follows). He created Mastodon.

If you were on todon dot nl THAT would be your Local TL.

Federated TL is a mix of all the various Mastodon servers. It now has a user base of 3.5M.

Try filters to make it less crazy. to block porn, anime, etc.

One thing I could add:
The accounts on your lists don't know about your lists, they aren't notified or anything (like they do on twitter)


Good point, and they are also not lists that can be seen by anyone but the user who created the list. It's purely an organizational tool.
