@rands it's not too bad, it takes a while to get used to though!
@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.
@rands sorry, it's hard to describe! the wiki entry describes the federation part a little better https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mastodon_(software)
Everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct! Thank you.
