Regarding Mastodon hashtag searches:

I’m writing a new Mastodon blog post and want to be sure that I understand hashtag searches - please.

It seems that since I'm running a search when logged into a specific instance, that the results of the search may differ between instances, since each instance chooses which other instances to connect to. (?)

Could someone tell me please if I have a correct understanding of this? Thanks.

This plot is really interesting. It gives perspective on the fediverse, including GNU Social servers.

Oh and one more thing - this is my pup, Ella. She’s about two years old, and likes to keep busy.

For those interested, we’ve been organizing & discussing (Social Media in Emergency Management) on birdsite for 6+ years. We’ve also built systems for bringing together virtual teams of volunteers & we’ve been discussing that on the (Virtual Operations Support Teams) tag for many years also. The French tag for this concept is & there are already many MSGU folks here. (Bonjour MSGU friends!) We have a weekly birdsite chat on the tag at 12:30pm EST (4:30pm UTC).

Here’s a link (below) directly to the blog post mentioned above. I’’ve only been on Mastodon for a week and a half, but I’m really enjoying it and look forward to participating in this amazing, diverse, enthusiastic, funny and kind community.

Hello tooters, nice to meet you, I’m Scott & I help people during disasters by “social listening” (on all SM platforms) & getting the info to people who can help. I work with professional emergency managers & disaster aid workers, as well as volunteer digital humanitarians around the world. I’m very interested & enthusiastic about . I’ve posted about it on my blog here:
I’ve collected up all of the articles, posts, videos, resources & tools that I can find.

@Gargron if you’re interested in having someone to advise on how social media gets used in disasters, emergencies and other incidents, I’d be happy to participate in your working group if that would be helpful.

@Gargron Love Mastodon so much, I decided to create a 5 minute video explaining it... Let me know what you think!

At my daughter's brewery in McCordsville, Indiana. They're setting up for her 3 year anniversary celebration tomorrow.

OK I know everyone is tired about the discussions on politics and all the other things so here have a #happy 🦊 picture and if you can please share it for the sake of everyone's psyche. We need things like that.
