Is it possible to add a feed of your latest toots to a website? If yes, how? Thanks in advance!

@djoerd Yes, I never see any of your updates in my timeline so I have to go to your account manually to see if you have tooted something interesting ;-) But maybe putting those favourite accounts in a list is just the way to go!

Hi Fediverse!

One of the features I'm really missing here is to 'favourite' an account, as in, to make sure you don't miss any of their toots.

Maybe to get a notification of each of their toots, or to let them appear above all other toots in your timeline. Is something like this possible? I am aware of the option to make lists, but then I will still miss their toots if I don't click on the lists.

Thanks in advance!

Zou dit ook een gevolg zijn van het leenstelsel? Hoeveel studenten met een torenhoge lening gaan dit toch even be jij? Zou ik als student cam model ook over privacy mogen filosoferen voor geld? Vragen...

Wow! Have you ever heard of Turkmenistan? Have you ever heard of John Oliver? Yes? No? Doesn't matter.

Please watch this video. It is funny, interesting, political, entertaining, educating, and just amazing!

I'm not so sure we Dutch folks should be proud about our appartement role in getting Stuxnet inside the Natanz facility in Iran. Thoughts from the fediverse?

To me, this is a fascinating essay. It provides insight why I put so much value in beloging to communities. The University of Twente community, the KIVI Engineering Society community, my 10-people student house, the fediverse community (you), the dataviz community (Data Visualisation Society), the Dutch Mud Men OCR community and so on.

It also gives me insight in why I've changed so much since high school. Back then, I just didn't find the right communities for me!

We are, a lot of us, a great deal sadder, more anxious, more incomplete and more restless than we really need to be because of something very large that is missing from our lives. What’s worse, we don’t even know what this thing is and how much we crave it, because we don’t have the right concepts, experience or encouragement to help us locate it. What we long for and are slowly dying without is: community.

2: The immaturity of Mastodon as a social network. It's still mainly a place for marginalised groups / radicals. Whether it's in technology (the infosec / data science / privacy community is overrepresented. That makes sense, since we are eager to jump on new technology) or the LGBTQXYZ+ community. This leads to the fact that it's hard to find instances without radical rules. Therefore, I think it's very important to get also random other communities on the fediverse. See ocr.social!

@mrb This perfectly shows 2 things.

1: The importance of finding a suitable home instance, which means finding someone or some organisation that you trust with your data. Remember that mastodon admins have access to all toots, including direct messages, in plaintext. There is a reason they are not called private messages. Additionally, you should also feel comfortable with their rules, or expect them to shape the rules together with the community that they are creating on the instance.

Hi there!

If you're reading this,
I'd like to get to know you a little better :)

1) Which book are you currently reading?
2) What is the last book you have finished?
3) If you could recommend the fediverse to read one single book for next month, which one would it be?
