I’ve been here for years and I’m an instance admin and I still don’t really know how the posts go from one website to another. I think it’s the same technology they use to send pokemon to a different game boy

@prehensile this does mean that for a post to appear on another instance, it must disappear from your instance. mastodon's innovation is sending the posts back and forth so fast that you don't notice they're gone

@codl @prehensile if you defederate at the exact right time you can cause a post duplication glitch
