Hello #Fediverse!

Any volunteers who don't mind me using their OStatus handles / profile pages in a geeky public "tutorial like thing" on how the Fediverse works? I need samples from both the Mastodon world and GNU Social, the more the merrier really.

It was launched in 1977. In ~2020 it will being instrument power sharing. ~2025, it can no longer power any of its instruments and will be drifting in space.

Is there a tool for automatically translating toots in your federated timeline to your chosen language? I see a lot of French and Japanese, and while it's super edifying to try to learn new languages... an automatic translation would go a long way!
