@speasley You definitely gotta go out of your way to find some active folks (and I had a hell of a time figuring out the whole instance thing). Very much like Twitter circa 2007… I’d suggest following a few folks you know, then following a few people they follow. It’ll be lighter than Twitter, but I kind of like that about it.
