@octesian there is a mechanism that mastodon uses where replys show up in the home feed if you follow everyone in the @ mentions.
I found it works a bit better if you boost other people's replies to you that you find insightful, giving other users the option to follow the other account and surface interesting ideas.
Mastodon instance for attendees of Refactor Camp, and members of various online/offline groups that have grown out of it. Related local groups with varying levels of activity exist in the Bay Area, New York, Chicago, and Austin.
