What are your suggestions for ways to find new accounts to follow on Mastodon? Now the Bridge has been taken down it’s harder to find people you might already know.
@ben_hr I've mostly been browsing the local timeline on my instance tbh. I've long since given up on most people I knew from Twitter coming here, heh.
@virtualwolf I guess my (possibly failing) instance may be too niche for that 😬
@ben_hr Hahah. Start looking at different ones, perhaps. :D
@ben_hr (But not huge ones like mastodon.social... having moved to a smaller instance from that one, I find the small one to be much better in every respect).
@ben_hr what is the bridge?
@claudiuscluever Mastodon Bridge used to be a site that let you find people with twitter accounts on here, before twitter locked off the API
@ben_hr ah right, makes sense!
@ben_hr eavesdropping because I've been pretty crap at finding new accounts. Follow Fridays are always nice I suppose.
@ben_hr hashtags can be useful, and dipping into the local and federated timelines, depending on your instance
@ben_hr same way I find people elsewhere - go to someone I already follow and check out who they’re following.
@mikelynch nice one, thanks
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
