Bryan Lunduke's message to Mastodon developers:
"If you're listening, we need an ability to move between servers & migrate an account between servers where people who are following that account get updated in some way to follow it on a new server".
The issue was such: mastodon.rocks went down. Lunduke lost all of his account data with it being the most followed (4000) person on that particular server.
How to address this problem?

Problem with the cloud subscription model (IMO) is that you can be switched off, and you own less than a perpetual purchase ie. when you end your subscription you have no software to read your saved information. Of course if you save it using the international #ODF format you can still use free #LibreOffice to read it but how many corporates plan for this.

I agree with this,
"More compelling, though, is to have accounts on each of the instances that revolve around your specific interests, engaging heavily on the local scene and using the federation for related conversations."
