@joonian federated timeline doesn't show all public toots it shows all public toots made by someone who followed by someone on you server. So if no one on a particular server follows you you won't appear in that server's federated timeline.

@joonian the fediverse is larger than mastodon it also includes other gnusocial instances such as Quitter.co

@Shutsumon thx.. is there a good article/blog post that sets that out?

@joonian possibly. I just know it's larger because I've seen posts from Qvitter and Friendica instances on the timeline. Let me poke around.

@joonian thanks for the great explanation which got me to sign up! :sunglasses:
