Finding people to follow on the fediverse (e.g. Mastodon/Pleroma) is simple!
1. Start by checking the timeline for your local instance. See an interesting post? check the author's timeline. Are they or their posts interesting? Follow them.
2. Check their boosts and give their authors the same treatment.
3. Rinse and repeat. 🔄
Is your local instance too quiet? Try the federated timeline, but brace for noise!
