Kicking the tires on a private Mastodon instance. If the point is federation then... let's federate?
@james federation happens when you follow people or people follow you. If 50 people follow you from one instance and 50 people from another then you will be federated with just those two instances. You cant manually federate.
@freemo thankfully I have some followers, so it's already begun :)
@james Awesome, good luck!
Private instance for me & my bots
