My favorite feature, though, is the ability to interact with other Mastodon providers (or communities, as they call it). As I recently wrote, I believe we should model the future web around protocols instead of platforms and Mastodon does it by implementing the ActivityPub protocol. When I scroll over my feed, I read messages that have been posted on other public Mastodon servers other than my own. Even my Mastodon handle is in the format <name>@<provider>. I love it!
