Mastodon help required. I've got an account here on mastodon.social. I'm interested in another instance, tabletop.social, which is about RPGs. What's the best way to get a sense of what's going on there, find a place in that community, etc? I can create a second account there, but doesn't Mastodon's nature mean I don't have to? I can browse their timeline (e.g., http://www.unmung.com/mastoview?url=tabletop.social&view=local) and follow individuals; is that the way to do it? Bit confused.
@ted yeah. I really don't want multiple accounts unless I have to -- for utterly-completely-single-purpose-only instances then fine, maaaaybe, but I don't pigeonhole the stuff I write in that way, and don't really want to either. The app that lets me look at other timelines would be great, except I don't think it exists :)
@sil I believe that Tootdon can do it, but I've not used it: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tootdon-for-mastodon/id1282283934
I'm using Tusky which can not though. Seems like a cool feature.
@sil I think that the multi-accounts will come from multiple tools that solve different problems. For instance, your blogging software could appear as an account, Gitlab, your social network, news feed reader, etc.
The result is that you'll be pushing and consuming the messages in different ways, even if they're all AP based.
