So, I created now two additional mastodon-accounts for their local timelines on other instances. On my main-account my TL is interesting, but the federated timeline is just too full of uninteresting stuff

I am a sysadmin with a background in Japanese Science and economics. Thus my topics are computers, Japan and economics. My favorite past times are pen&paper-role playing games and old video games.

With a couple of friends I also podcast about retro video games in German: Retrozirkel

@hjertnes it is nice. I like the federated aspect of it but I wished I could have a client that lets me combine several instance-timelines into one, so that I wouldn’t need several accounts for interesting local timelines.

@hjertnes now it gets a bit more complicated. Each instance has a local timeline of all toots posted. And you have a federated timeline. When you follow B and C the local timelines of B and C get pulled into your federated timeline (at least this is my understanding how it works)

@hjertnes so it is ok if you follow B and C because you have then some local timelines in your federated timeline but it gets too much too fast imho. And I follow like one Japanese user and now O have tons of Japanese toots in my federated timeline

@hjertnes but I am interested especially in the local timelines of and, both quite specialized instances. Thus I created accounts there, so I can just read their local timeline.
