So local is within my own instance and federated is from... all of them? How do I change instances? Google doesn't seem to be helping.
@itchystitchies From what I've seen, there's a way to migrate your account by Exporting/Backing Up your current account and followers lists, and then importing it to a new account. I looked for "migrating mastodon instance" for that. Not exactly sure if your followers automatically follow you on the new account, but maybe you can import to a new account without deleting the old one yet? @mastodonFAQ
