If you want to try out the Fediverse in a friendly environment, we gotchoo.
The more locals that join this instance the better it gets automagically.
The local timeline would be only STL people/stuff, yet hooked into the entire fediverse.
I've tied the Mastodon site to this site, so all your tagged posts on Mastodon would show up here if there is a topic.
Check out Gardening.
You can also take your follows/followers elsewhere if you like.
Start your own instance for that matter.
ActivityPub is the protocol that Mastodon was built on.
I've followed it for years. It's a keeper.
