@liberdon Can you explain where the Federated timeline imports from. Are all these folks on your platform or is this an import mesh of other private platforms? Also I would like to do a story about this to help promote it but I need to understand Mastodon better and how it works. Can you help me?
@lupotv @liberdon My understanding is that the federated timeline contains original messages from each account that is followed by someone on one's local server, no matter what server the account is on.
So, because I (and presumably many others on Liberdon) follow @thinkliberty, a user on mastodon.social not Liberdon, anyone who looks at Liberdon's federated timeline will see thinkliberty's toots (but not replies or boosts).
No doubt someone will correct me if I have this wrong. :)
Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
