One thing I noticed about the Mona for Mastodon client is some options appear missing if you haven't purchased it. This is going off the LivingBlinbfully tutorial. So I would recommend purchasing Mona first. What I find confusing is how to search for example I can't find the living blindfully profile to follow. I also can't find David Goldfield who I know is on there. Maybe it is just me but I think this is why Mastodon hasn't been widely adopted.
