So if I have the option to move from mastodon.social to a different instance, how does that work?
@Verso I assumed it meant you had to create a 2nd account, but now I’m wondering if there is instance migration available
@Verso you pretty much have to just tell your followers to follow your new account and hope they notice. Hopefully they can address this in a better way at some point.
@bigzaphod I've seen at least one where I clicked to see the profile and got "this account has moved to" with a different @ name.
@Verso yeah you can setup a forward in the settings on the website, but it won’t take your exciting followers along unfortunately.
You can export some of your data, and make a new account on a new instance, I don't think you can just like, up and move and drag all your followers and everything with you.
