Nice explanation of how a post reaches one of your timelines.

@manu Nice, thanks for the link! One confusing thing in it is that it says unlisted toots won't show up in "the timelines", but it refers to the "home timeline". They show up in followers' home timelines.

@manu Probably need to add in a 'are my instance and foo's instance connected via a relay? -> Federated timeline' now, but neat!

@manu I didn't knew replies didn't make it to the Local/Federated, that's nice, I'll stop changing privacy settings when answering to unlisted then


I just saved this image. I'm putting it within easy reach so I can remember the routing of how everything seems to go everywhere. Thank you!
