did anyone read the recent FT article about Mastodon? was it interesting? I don't have a subscription anymore

The FT article was not great. Perhaps it highlights something: how to join Mastodon successfully.

How to find accounts to follow
"The timeline shows a stream of memes, posts about cats and commentary on news stories... I missed seeing the names I follow on other social media"

No mention of hashtags, the main discoverability mechanism.

"I went to sign up and immediately hit a brick wall. To join Mastodon, you need to join a server. But how do you choose one?"
