If you're looking for people to follow on here, try #Trunk:

It's an opt-in directory of users who are looking for followers, organised by topic. (People are only listed if they actively ask to be listed.)

Just go to the list you want (e.g. ) and click on people to see their profiles. To follow them, click on "follow".

To be added or removed, message one of the admin accounts listed on Trunk's front page.

You can follow multiple hashtags on Mastodon very easily:

1. Search for a hashtag
2. Go to the search results column, open its options and select "Pin"
3. On the pinned column, open its options and select "Include additional tags for this column"
4. Add all the hashtags you want to follow to "Any of these"

This pinned column will then show results for the tags you add to it.

It allows you to follow topics in a single column the same way you would follow people.
