Some good hashtags to check out on the Fediverse:

& - Music tracks currently listened to

- Pictures of cats on Saturdays

- Mushrooms and other fungi

& & - Fiction and poetry short enough to fit into a toot

- Pictures of moss

- Interesting artists on Bandcamp

- Anything you are reading

- Anything you are writing

& - Requesting help or info from people on the Fedi

- French language discussion of books on Fridays

- Italian language discussion of music

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.


huh, I follow hashtags and it works? I have a timeline for hashtags that I want to follow


Are you using the advanced (multicolumn) interface?

That option isn't available on the default (single column) interface.


I am yes, so I think the issue should be removed and reopened with a more clear title, like "followed hashtags should appear in the home timeline too" or something



That's a good point, I'll try to remind them that the feature already exists in the issue!

It is so odd that this feature is missing from the default version.


It should defintely exist as an option in the home timeline
