If you use the @FediFollows directory (at, when you click on an account's follow button it will ask you to enter your own Mastodon address, in a process called "remote follow".

Remote follows are annoying as you have to keep entering your details again and again, even though you've already logged in on your home server 🤬

Fortunately, there is now a solution, a new plug-in for Firefox browsers called "Mastodon Simplified Federation":

When the plug-in is installed, you don't need to enter your address any more when doing remote follows 👍

The plug-in is written by @rugk and you can find out more info at

Special announcement:

Open Source Gardens (which connects gardeners around the world that use open source seeds) has moved to a new address:

➡️ @opensourcegardens

The old address ( will forward you to the new one (, and any existing followers will be automatically moved.

If you were unable to follow their old address, you might want to try following their new address 👍

I definitely never expected that our time spend standardizing ActivityPub would be the subject of academic research, but I've been interviewed for several dissertations/theses about it.

Let's make a thread! Who's done, or is doing, academic research about the fediverse?
