(Not so much a tip but a plea...)
If you want to be able to follow hashtags in Mastodon, please put a thumbs up on the following issue:
If you're a developer, maybe you could contribute to the code to make this possible?
Following hashtags would be really useful for discovering new people to follow. New people would find interesting content more easily too. It would help Mastodon and the Fediverse grow 🌱 👍
@feditips I can already follow hashtags with #Tusky😉
