Mastodon Groups have been implemented by third parties using auto-boosting accounts. Here is one example: search for @india (you must type their username into the search box: at India at gup.pe!) and follow them. The gulp.pe server creates the account when you search for it. If you mention it, it will boost your message, and thus everybody else following them will get their message.
