I’m new. Is each mastodon server disconnected from each other ?

@steve nope! servers can exchange statuses once you follow someone from a different server.

your message can also be seen on other servers if someone boosted your status to their followers. Or if that server participates in a relay. which will forward for status to any servers which have joined that relay.

@steve Hello! Welcome to fediverse!
mastodon servers are connected to each other and to other fediverse services(pleroma, pixelfed, peertube...)
