Here's a flow chart of how the fediverse works.

You don't ever see all of the fediverse from one instance. The vast majority of what you see is people followed by people on your instance.

Hashtag searches are limited to that, too.

So if you want to make your bit of the fediverse good, you have to:

1) Boost cool stuff to all your followers on other instances, especially if they contain hashtags;

2) Use hashtags.

Thanks for this. What I still don't get is why sometimes I get toots of people who seem to answer to someone but I can't see the other person.
These people I never talked and I am not that active so they can't have blocked me.
This happened to me for Korben for example. I can see he tooted hundreds of toots but for me only 3 are available. Then I can see people answering him but can't see his post ...
Do you have any idea ?
