Threads isn’t exactly the fediverse.


They don't have the entire Mastodon functionality yet but it is awesome we can follow Biden on Mastodon.


They’ll never have the full Mastodon functionality because they’re Facebook. It’s always going to be a one way proposition where Masto can see them but they can’t see us. It’s honestly kind of like being a creepy Peeping Tom.

Assuming, of course, that your instance doesn’t block Threads. Many (most?) do. Some even block second-degree connections.

Until they do, my only interaction with Threads will be to follow Biden on kbin.


Can anyone tell me how I can follow President Biden from

I’d bet kbin is defederated, almost everything is defederated from threads


I hope you're right, but I would love to know someone posted this to Geno Joe.


If that's the case I will go to Mastodon. But I would love to follow Biden on kbin.

Nia_The_Cat, you can follow him via this link (anyone else on other kbin instances, just adjust the link to your instance, assuming you aren’t defederated or if it isn’t bugging out atm on your server it should work)

Remember that federation is currently one way with threads. You and other fediverse users can see your own replies and boosts etc on their posts and interact with each other, but no one from threads can see your interactions or replies to them.

If you search for @potus he comes up and you can select Follow. Content should then show in the ‘Microblog’ stream. Might take a while to start flowing, though


Thanks! It works.
