Okay, so question on how this Mastodon thing works. If I created my own instance on a domain I own, would I have the option of federating *all* of select other instances' toots, to make up for the near-total lack of a local timeline?
Related, would it be possible in theory to add a feature where you track the local timeline of specific other instances on their own column? (ie. to participate in multiple sub-communities but from a central account you control)
