Hey there! 👋
A number of people over past few months have assumed I'm a bot or some kind of automated account.
I can assure you I am not, there is a human being behind this keyboard! I write and post everything manually, there's no scheduling or scripts or stuff like that.
If you have any questions about the Fediverse, or requests or suggestions or comments or feedback just @ or DM me, I will try to help if I can.
The aim of this account is to help and encourage people use the #Fediverse, even with the most basic things. There's no such thing as a stupid question! 👍
Yes, you can do all those things Easiest way to explain this is if you try it out.
For example try following @pianotv and interacting with the videos there from within Mastodon (and I think it works in Friendica too). If you want to see what the account looks like in PeerTube, click on the profile's avatar photo.
There are interesting PeerTube videos and accounts to follow at @FediVideos (which is currently focusing on Halloween, but normally posts general interest videos).
Kind of related question. Is it possible to link a pixelfed account to my mastodon account? I tried to access pixelfed via the handle but was not successful so far.
Short answer is no, because PixelFed will be on another instance.
Each Fediverse account is on one instance at a time. You can move it from one instance to another, but you cannot use the same account on many instances simultaneously.
I don't know, but maybe someone could set up a cross-posting system though?
@feditips oh there are stupid questions. But there is nothing wrong with asking them. One has to ask them sometimes to find the important answers :)
@feditips I wasn't sure if the account represented a person or a small group, but I did assume FediTips was a human curated set of interesting Fediverse users.
You're on the Fediverse right now, Mastodon is part of it.
When you follow people on here, you are following people on the Fediverse 👍
