@moonlightsiesta @Gargron @mykd find a hashtag you want to follow via RSS, say #solarpunk, click on it to reach the page for it on your instance. For me it's:
Now add .rss at the end:
Boom, RSS feed for #solarpunk as seen from mastodon.technology!
@rysiek @Gargron @mykd omg I just did it. That’s so simple but such a brilliant idea, ty. I’ve been wondering what rss was for for years. I did it with particular people I follow under a specific topic. That way I can have my Covid Careful ppl together ❤️ . It’s a shame we can’t follow people on twitter that way - you could have their posts show up on a feed and not have to sort through the mess. @trendless lookie!
I wonder if it's because I set the description of my server (zeroes.ca) to "COVID careful Twitter refugees ♥️"
@trendless it was what we were discussing on Twitter - how to keep our Covid ppl together regardless of the platform. I wanted to see if it was possible to do it. And it looks like we can - we just don’t have that functionality in Twitter. I loved the “Covid Careful” label in that discussion.
I agree 100%. I hope people will be willing to make a change. In light of all the moderation/labeling issues over there, even prior to Musk's offer (and if it does eventually fall through), it's time to look for alternatives. We need a community we can moderate ourselves, together, based on our shared values and priorities. I'm absolutely astounded at how well the general fediverse ethos seems to dovetail with #COVIDcautious, tbh.
I *super* appreciate all the work you've been putting in. Really helped to kick my butt into gear. 🙏
@trendless aww thanks. Our twitter community is especially important with so many experts dropping the ball and I want to make sure community gets strengthened. Best way is through connections.
