A good explanation of how the protocol works.
logs in through social media api
view posts, corresponding threads/comments sections
server publishes data form these services in real time to mastodon
server creates/tracks fake mastodon user from every other user
these users are visible with clever naming scheme and tolerated by server
interacting with these real servers from ur acct (must be hosted in same place) == ur account on that social media interacting with their real acct
likes, follows etc. also emulated – though have to check if current user is following them, has liked, has followed etc.
should port over images, videos, gifs etc from whatever proprietary twitter thing they use to sane default formats to display on mastodon (i guess these should be cached for some time period, then…)
Federated social media is the future.
