Mastodon in Under a Minute

I like the idea.

I’d think that an interactive web interface is the only way to get onboarding <1min. Especially if the Fediverse is experiencing sustained growth now.

To avoid the concept of “instance” as much as possible, we could:

  1. Develop a web app that considers a users interests (e.g. a list of hashtags/topics to select from) to suggest an instance
  2. include account creation in the actual web app (e.g. as an iframe)
  3. include invite- only instances through a special arrangement allowing direct sign-ups for users of the web app.

With something like this, the idea of an instances could be optional to using the fediverse.
