confused about #mastodon 

Exactly how out of sync can profiles be across instances? Is it possible that when viewed from a different instance, the visibility of toots on a profile are "random", i.e. not based on how recently they were posted? I mean they could just be non-public, but I thought those just won't be on the local and federated timelines and still will be on the profile?

Also can the profile picture be out of sync?

I'm so confused...

@elliotshimizu toots from a remote instance only get here when someone is following the account. Toots can be delayed if either the remote or local instance go down for a bit or have trouble federating.
