Finally, I'm getting more followers from other instances than followers that are forced to follow me on this instance. Pretty neat!

@jonah How do I use my login details for here to view other servers? Im a little confused with this federated system :)

@Skepticalme @jeff posts from other servers are going to show up on your federated timeline, that’s the best way to find other users. One thing your client (Amaroq) can do however is show the timelines from other servers without needing you to login, which the website can’t. So that’s a feature you could use if you want to see posts from specific individual other servers. Otherwise, the local timeline shows only posts from this server, and Home shows posts from everyone you follow.

@jonah @jeff Ahhh great, I see.

I hope more news services join the federation as that's what I mainly used Twitter for.
