Does decentralization mean people on other instances can sign up with the same @ username? Can I move @potentato to another instance?

@potentato I was actually curious about this too. And can a person read across all instances at once?

Like can I follow @user@instance and @user2@instance2 and read both in the same timeline?

@Pixxella the federated timeline would let you read both, yes.


@potentato @Pixxella I wonder, what's the point in tweeting/tooting anyway. We could get back to running blogs and publish blogrolls (or not, privacy and the such). The perfect decentralization.

@mark @Pixxella I'm happy to see a whole range of expression, from toots to blogs to 1-sheet folded paper zines
