@Tatianamac The proposed solution to every Mastodon problem is "run your own instance, and make it work however you like".
I understand why techies like this approach: it gives them all the power and none of the responsibility.
Why is this step necessary? mastodon.social might not be the server where you are registered, so we need to redirect you to your home server first.
