Love these #listOfPeople s. Which sounds a little chilling, now that I say it out loud.
@adamdavidson

@jlori so how does one use these lists? Print them out and search for them?

@nahood It is better to search the online doc and pick the usernames to find them here.

@jlori @aramsinn my understanding is that current #fediverse culture frowns on lists like that if they’re not opt-in. Not everybody wants to “grow their network” and/or be inundated with follow requests. The default here seems to be slow and organic growth.

@mamamusings @aramsinn Thanks, Liz: The lists are opt-in and those who offer downloading as CSV file includes only users that have expressly agreed, for example: fedified.com/

By the way, there is not ONE culture in the Fediverse, but many different communities and approaches (and expanding very fast).

@jlori

You are the best for posting these lists. Thank you!

@jlori Can I recommend maybe using a non-Google place to store these? Maybe GitHub or Codeberg?

@jlori id love to be added to the scicomm / media scholar list!

@fromthelabbench Great! Check the link of each list you are interested in.

The problem of lists 

@jlori I've seen a lot of #lists as mainly a way to find people from #Twitter on #Mastodon, but it's extremely unclear whether list makers have sought #consent of people to put them on lists.

@jlori Is there a way to batch follow the Journalism list, or is Mastodon not set up for that?

@jlori @kakape thank you! Just followed a bunch of nice people I did not know were here. 😊

@jlori I counted around 2160 people! Maybe some people are on multiple lists, though.

@jlori Great, thank you! If at some time there would also be a list for economists and experts in financial markets, then that would be truly fantastic 😃

@nahood They can be useful for discovering new users to follow. Also, when asked about on , I share the post's permalink for reference.
