Follow

Are Mastodon instances connected somehow? For example: can I communicate to another user in another instance in this instance? It seems like that should be an option/feature of some sort.

@logonoff you can follow and mention other people on other instnaces

@logonoff if you follow someone from another instance your instance will pick up their messages and they'll show up on the federated timeline

@logonoff They are indeed linked. It's called federation, and it's automagical.

@logonoff For example: you're on .social, I'm on .cloud. I saw your toot and replied.
