@Rockmeannadeus sarah jeong's motherboard article does a good job of explaining stuff in more detail https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/mastodon-is-like-twitter-without-nazis-so-why-are-we-not-using-it
@Rockmeannadeus it's basically like email. my username is @lycaon. anyone can start an instance, just like anyone can start an email server, so i also have @lycaon, just like i have firstname.lastname@example.org but i could also have email@example.com or whatever. it gets a little more complicated because posts on mastodon are meant to propagate to all your followers rather than just being end to end but that's the basic idea.
OUT NOW: Secret Spaces Update v0.4.0-alpha: "Water, Light, and Seeds!"
The Tower shifts, and the world around you grows... What could be in store for this week?
* Real proper menus are a thing now!
* Share seeds with your friends so you can show them your adventure into the Infinite Tower!
* Lighting is less god-awful!
* The world itself is larger!
* Even more stuff!

THAT BEING SAID: I personally think that allowing users to curate their own instance-level blocks would be preferable. Telling people 'make your own instance if you don't like it' is untenable.
