i literally have no idea how mastodon works i don't know what instances are i'm Computer Dumb

@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 lycaonsgames@gmail.com but i could also have lycaonsgames@lycaon.me 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.

@lycaon okay that makes it a little more clear!! i still don't totally get it but i'll probably do some googling so i can figure it out!
