"You have closed registrations on mastodon.social, so how will my friends get in or find me?"

Tell your friends to sign up on knzk.me/about then tell them: "Search for MyUsername@mastodon.social" and voilà, you have found each other.

It's very similar to how e-mail addresses work.

@Gargron New to Mastodon, and many of us twitter refugees are having to sign up on different servers. Is there a way to search for a handle across all servers?

@a9ymous

look for some of the explainers being retooted, but yes: IDs look a lot like email addresses, with a local part on the left and a server part on the right

put the local part in your client's search function. generally, that's enough
