Unfortunately Mastodon's default interface doesn't allow you to follow hashtags.
It would be great if this feature was added to standard Mastodon. If you agree, please give a thumbs up 👍 to this issue on the Mastodon git:
NOTE: Hashtag following doesn't mean changing the way federation works. Following hashtags could be just limited to showing posts that are already visible from that instance anyway.
The idea isn't to show every tagged post everywhere on the Fedi, but just to save the user the bother of having to repeatedly search for interesting hashtags manually.
This has already been implemented on e.g. Friendica, which is part of the ActivityPub Fediverse.
Are you using the advanced (multicolumn) interface?
That option isn't available on the default (single column) interface.
Discover & explore Mastodon with no ads and no surveillance. Publish anything you want on Mastodon: links, pictures, text, audio & video.
All on a platform that is community-owned and ad-free.
