the thing I like the most about the recent update of mastodon.

The federation between #hubzilla and #mastodon is working again. :-)))

#gab and #twitter both have literal Nazis (in #mastodon and #joindiaspora they're banned). Speaking of which, @tuxmachines #shadowbanned

💡 An idea for #federation that I came across in #fediverse

TL;DR: autofollow bot to improve the view of the federation of every instance

Reading GNU Social's manual... "Hashtags are somewhat limited in GNU social because your server does not have a complete view of the network. Suppose your server has 10 accounts on it. It knows about every post that those 10 people make. If each person follows 10 different people on remote servers, that’s 100 extra people. Now your server knows about the posts from 110 accounts. If you click on a hashtag on your server, it’s only ever possible to see posts from those 110 people."

...makes it clear that all networks have same ~~problems~~ tricks. If a user registers at a small instance (or runs one), they face the issue of an empty stream, or "the ghost town" as some users call it, until they subscribe to many users on different pods. In #Mastodon they came up with autofollow bot, like this one - and here it is at work on one instance, autofollowing Mastodon, GNU Social accounts (and probably other fediverse compatible instances). These bots are doing a good job of making the timeline of smaller instances more interesting. They also help make the fediverse more connected. (They are also used by some who try to collect subscribers in a twitter-ish fashion, following, then unfollowing -- but eh, that's inevitable human nature I guess :)

I haven't come across such bot for #diaspora. So thought it might be useful.

In #twitter I get a lot of abuse. In #gab I receive VERY racist abuse. In #mastodon and #diaspora none. Very SOCIAL networks. Social.
