Trunk allows you to mass-follow a bunch of people in order to get started with Mastodon or any other platform on the Fediverse. Mastodon is a free, open-source, decentralized microblogging network.
If you click on one of the lists below, you'll see a page full of people that volunteered to be on that list. Yeah, people. Our goal is to connect newbies with people. The only exception we have is our Organizations, NGOs & Associations list. All the other lists are about people. Click to see their timelines and follow them individually, or click the big button at the top to do follow them all. We hope this helps you find some new people to follow.
Please remember that we're all human and interests change and nobody promised to either an expert on these topics or to be posting exclusively about these topics. And of course, people change, or leave. 🙂
If you want to be added to a list, or removed from a list, or if you'd like to see a new list, or if you have any other questions and concerns, contact one of the administrators via Mastodon.
As Trunk and the number of requests is growing, we kindly ask you to mention just one of us. Thank you! 😅
Note that you cannot volunteer other people. People have to volunteer themselves. Please encourage them to contact one of the administrators!
When you follow an entire list, this is what happens:
you are redirected to your instance
you must login if you aren't logged in already
you must authorize Trunk (this application)
Trunk makes your account follow every person in the list you picked (unless you're following them already)
Trunk creates a list with the same name for you
any new account Trunk just followed are added to this list (hopefully this helps you to quickly unfollow them if you made a mistake)
If you follow all the accounts on the list, and new accounts get added at a later point, you won't automatically follow them. No automatic updates!
(Also, since this is the early days, please know that there are downtimes when I'm desperately trying to fix things, probably right now! 😢)
