@helenaroth I like the friendly atmosphere. Especially having been a climate scientist on Twitter and having all those fools trying to derail real conversations.
My main tip is to write a post with the hashtag introduction (in German it is NewHere). It is a bit harder here to find interesting people, that partially because Mastodon is decentralized and partly also because it makes it harder for baddies to find people to harass. With an introduction post you make it easy for people to find you.
Fediscience is the social network for scientists.
