Just joined. Anyone have recommendations for tech or music accounts to follow?

@hoof Welcome to the fediverse! Try searching hashtags for and whatever genres you’re into. Also try the tag and consider posting an introduction of your own.

@ghost_bird @hoof after checking the introduction tag you can also check #trunk. it is a directory of folk in fediverse by topics of interest. :) Welcome to the fediverse. communitywiki.org/trunk


@eylul @hoof Thanks, but I’m afraid a lot of people here don’t appreciate tools for mass following or scrapers. Unless that database is opt-in only?

@eylul @hoof ...I see it is opt-in only, though, so that’s fine. Sorry for the sharp response but there’s at least one instance out there scraping profiles for a database - I had to suspend them.

@ghost_bird @hoof oh no no, it is a valid question to ask but yeah trunk existed from early days of fediverse, and is not a bot. :)

@ghost_bird @hoof Trunk is VERY manual and VERY opt in. To add yourself to the registry you poke one of the maintainers politely in a DM (or the DM the bot who also I believe just forward your request to a maintainer) and ask them to add you (or remove in case of a move etc) to some lists.

It is intended for people who want to be open to be followed by new people.
