Mastodon question: would it be possible to create and run an instance and keep it private?

I'm confused. Why do I see someone I don't follow in my home timeline?

Read on FB: "ni patrie, ni patron", ça veut surtout dire que t'es pas trop marron.
C'est beau comme un pavé dans la gueule.

Started the Handmaids Tale yesterday. This speech. This fucking speech. I hope votants will be awake next week here. Because fuck. this. youtube.com/watch?v=PJTonrzXTJ

According to one of my friends, there is less people on Mastodon now than two/three weeks ago

Well. :'(

also: the German term for the wind in your face you get from moving at speed is "Fahrtwind"

do with this information what you will

My account on mastodon.social/@digitalyn finally received a confirmation email. Planning on using both and see how things go (you know, shit hitting the fan on an instance, for example)

[Help] Salut la communauté.

J'avais posté ça sur Twitter mais j'ai eu peu de retour : twitter.com/LN_Ripley/status/8

Alors oui, je tourne sur Android, mais sans compte Google. J'aimerais attirer un peu l'attention sur ça car cette MaJ de YouTube pose vraiment des problèmes sur la #ProtectionDesDonnees et le respect de la #ViePrivee

Vous pourriez faire tourner, siouplait ?
Merci 😙

(I know this is not so uncommon, previous awesome job had sushi / pizza parties everytime we had to squish a deadline. But last job was so horrid, I'm just counting my blessings every days.

New job has croissants for employees in the morning.
Croissants.
For everyone.
CROISSANTS YOU GUYS. mastodon.xyz/media/yorGITXCrqd

When you want to find a comfortable room from which to use Mastadon quickly.

Certain English-speaking Mastodon users: "OMG Mastodon is awesome what an inclusive and diverse space!"

Same Mastodon users: "Ugh what's with all the Japanese and French so annoying how do we stop it"

Oddly enough, the people confusing "freedom of speech" with "freedom to be an asshole" are the one I'm usually not interested to listen to.
The mute/block button is awesome.

Going to make a list and calculate a score based on that.
Yes, a score, again.

Still needing your help anyway, please tell me everything in your mind that may be prohibited on an instance. :)

Apologies for the low signal of the past few days: feeling a bit under the weather, which is terrible timing.
Doc appt tomorrow (again =.=)

I love Mastodon. But I don't like lies or wrong arguments.

Twitter doesn't need your number. They ask for, but you can skip. mastodon.technology/users/twit

Instagram: My life is a party.

Snapchat: My life is a quirky TV show.

Facebook: My life turned out great!

Twitter: We're all going to die.

Mastodon: Don't worry, while we are on a quirky, meandering path towards an inevitable apocalypse, we might as well enjoy the ride and show eachother some love in an unorthodox, yet irresistible manner, not in any way hindered by considerations of style, identity or consistency.

C'est fou le nombre de gens qui partent sur l'instance de la quadrature
