OK, so #tootdon communicates with this server: https://api.tootdon.ooo
This server is hosted in the USA(!!!)
There are several endpoints: /api/v1/instances gives a paginated list of instances, and seems to be the *only* one that doesn't require authentication.
There's also /api/v1/statuses and /api/v1/users. Not sure how authentication to this API works yet...
By the way, it also appears to be tied with this company: http://mobirocket.com/
@slipstream it's just the search.instances, statuses and users. https://niu.moe/media/qlzkW2hSX5YAJyYUk1I
@Pasty still, shoving everything it can into a US-based server... :/
