OK this is how I think it works, I would love to hear if I am wrong:
- your account lives on one instance.
- that can follow people from any instance
- your federated timeline is only your instance
- your personal timeline is everyone you follow, cross instances

This is correct, sounds like it really doesn’t matter what instance your account is on, unless you want to read the Federated timeline? Which might be useful, if it is an interest specific instance?

I'm hearing mastodon.social is getting hammered (thousands of new followers), which is... I guess not good? They're suggesting people join other instances but FYI, that is confusing for us newbies who don't know what the sweet hot hell is going on here.

I kind of like this setup. Just gonna take a few days looking for other comic book folks.
