So I don't quite get mastodon, yet ... may have missed sth in the docs. It feels obvious to me that I should use # searches to find interesting content in the federated timeline. I can do one-off searches ("#linux"), but that seems cumbersome to do explicit manual searches. Isn't it possible to create custom timelines? Like, maybe I want to see toots for "#linux" and "#selfhosted" in the same timeline. Or what am I missing, how do you find interesting federated content?
@jmehne You can do that by clicking the feeds settings icon at the top of the feed and then pin it.
@shellkr I feel a bit dense. feed = timeline? Not sure where I can pin sth :)
@jmehne Do a search. Click in the right icon of your screenshot. Check Pin. Done.
@mike Mind ... blown. That's the last thing I was missing. Thanks a lot!
@mike Are not lists for that?
@jcromero Lists only do other users, not hashtags (at least as far as I know).
@mike Yes, it seems so. I'm trying just now. It's a good way to group o categorize people you follow if you have a big number of them.
