Since I'm moving from mastodon.social to this new instance, I made a bot that I'm running on my old account. It responds to any new followers once, telling them where I've moved. Code is here, feel free to use/modify:
Note: it only works as well as the instance you're migrating from. So in my case, when mastodon.social is janky, the bot doesn't autoreply at all. No guarantees here.

So I've set up my new user over at @firstname.lastname@example.org. It is able to follow me here on mastodon.social, see my toots, etc, but I can't see my instance at all from mastodon.social. Even searching for the user here doesn't work. Do I just need to like, wait this out? (I am using the new "WEB_DOMAIN" env variable to alias social.tinysubversions.com in my fediverse ID, if that matters.)

I love that we base our idea of a political spectrum on the seating arrangement of a bunch of French dudes in the 1790s
When some people talk about filter bubbles and how it's good to burst them, they are almost always speaking in favor of centrism. "A person on the left should read right-leaning thought that they didn't agree with." But what about a left-learning person reading even-more-radical left-wing thought? That is still exposing yourself to new/uncomfortable ideas that challenge your beliefs.
I just find it curious that some people think "bursting your filter bubble" naturally lends itself to centrism.

Looks like there is some (unfinished?) work being done on a solution where you can host an instance at (say) social.tinysubversions.com but your masto identifier is tinysubversions.com https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/pull/1267
this might be the best solution (once it's done?)
