@Dieselbrain basically, people can make their own communities, and get to decide what content is and isn't allowed. they're all on their own server seperate from the main mastodon, and you have to join them the same way you joined the mastodon.social one
for instance, the main art one i've been seeing is @mastodon.art
Follow friends and discover new ones. Publish anything you want: links, pictures, text, video. This server is run by the main developers of the Mastodon project. Everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
