I'm a lawyer. I feel most competent in constitutional law. This means I'm constantly recovering from the trauma of being alive in these times.

In my doctoral work, I'm trying to understand constitutional claims outside courts - or the gulf between the Constitution of India & the constitution of India.

I'm currently teaching the law & science module to science undergrads, developing an RPG for children to work the Constitution democratically, and writing writing writing.

Any George Carlin fans out here? I miss him dearly! I watch his shows over and over again and try to make up some jokes that he'd have done if he were alive today.

In Twitter's centralised world, you can be identified by your "username"

Same is the case is with Facebook.

But here your ID is
username@instance_domain.

Exactly like email, ie, xyz@gmail.com

Here my ID is jamewils@mstdn.social

My instance name is also needed to identify

This is an area which many of the people, even prominent people, complain about, some says that these instances create confusion!

My QN is are you confused with Gmail and Yahoo mail?

You are too much used to Twitterverse & you expect a single server.

Here it work differently

So you should understand that many instances choices are in of .

Whichever instances you join, you can follow people at other instances & see the toots of theirs. Similarly your toots are visible to your followers irrespective of their instances.

mastodon.social is the flagship site, which is maintained by Eugen, who is the creator of which is having around 4 lakh users!

pawoo.net instance with 5.8 lakh users is biggest

But my instance mstdn.social is having only 3721 users!

Here in our works in the same way, for that it uses a protocol called Activity Hub, so that various instances can speak to each other.

So mastodon.social and mstdn.social and masthead.social are different instances in

varkychen boosted

So you are not creating your account in a centralised server here like in twitter.com.

Instead at any domain that runs Mastodon is called an instance and you can join any instance!

Confused?

Think about various email providers.

Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook etc.

isn’t just a website, it is a federation.

There are thousands, of small communities that live within the Mastodon system.

Each one is independent and unique, but they can all talk to one another.

These communities are called "INSTANCES".

First thing you should know that is a decentralized social media platform.

That is the fundamental difference between of it from or .

A decentralized network, which means there is no central group with all of the power.

So here it is
