@Sexybiggetje🐖 Hi Martijn, now your main instance is back (federation between Friendica and GoToSocial doesn't really work yet) I can reply regarding this post (https://plantsand.coffee/@martijn/statuses/01GBFWC7HM94S1GG3XTBM1J6XT) that 'nomadic identities' are implemented in Zap and Osada (among others), so they already do exist in the fediverse. From non-implementing platforms like Friendica and Mastodon these just look like two follows from two different accounts; and it shouldn't be impossible for other platforms on the fediverse to implement it as well.

Sexybiggetje🐖 reshared this.

Thanks! I was already up to speed on this, but forgot who implemented them and under what name. I'll take a look at how they implement it. Cool tech 🤗
@Sexybiggetje🐖 great! I don't know how it's implemented, but there's something like a copiedTo attribute on profiles that a platform can use to understand nomadic identities (Mastodon already I think uses movedTo for similar things), but there's a lot more complicated stuff about keeping channels in sync.
