@ryanmr So many columns.
@rands I'm on a different instance, so I guess by default I only have 2 columns here
@ryanmr How does one end up on a different instance and does it matter?
@rands You're on .social and I'm on .cloud -- when I made my account, .social was full.
Many instances are themed, so you could make an instance around a topic/theme and people could chat about it. But you can also connect among instance like we are - which is the federated part.
@ryanmr That's kind'a awesome.
@rands it is! the idea is that if you don't like the policy / rules of your instance, you can go to another, or make your own. I like to think of it like WordPress for blogging but for Twitter
