@Curator I strongly suggest people CW their twitter posts as twitter posts if they must crosspost too. I have legitimate trauma from that horrible place so it gives me the badfeels. I hate that i have to have a vague presence there to keep in contact w friends

IIt's important to note that Masto (and the fediverse) is not an 'alternative Twitter'. It's an entirely different platform that has its own unique culture. We don't chase likes or follows or popularity, we don't present as brands or 'personalities'. We care about each others' personal lives and wholesome engagement on a more individual level.

If you're going to use a Masto to Twitter crossposter, please keep this in mind, and ideally, cross post from here to there, and not there to here.

Why we want Reproductive Rights, and not just abortion access.

Transgender People have been forcibly sterilized in this country, in some states, to this day

Neurodivergent people have been sterilized, and this practice sadly exists to this day.

Disabled people have been sterilized, and sadly continues to this day.

A long standing Inmate sterilization program exists to this day.

Indigenous people were sterilized as part of a Colonial Genocide progrom, that ended as recently as 2006.

Why do people here refer to Twitter as "birdsite"? /1 

For many accounts that have been here for some time, Twitter was a very unsafe place. It was a place we suffered so much harassment, hate and bile, we finally made the often hard decision to switch to this smaller, but much friendlier and truly social network.
We wanted to leave Twitter behind. We had enough of the toxic algorithms that changed people's behaviour over there for the worse. We didn't want to be reminded of Twitter.

wait let me get this clear

if my post privacy is "unlisted" it wont even show up on the home timeline? to the people that follow me?

how great is this app for artists and their commission business, i wonder?

friends: i've made some tweaks to's code, and we now support a longer character limit when content warnings are enabled - a huge thanks to @CobaltVelvet for the implementation.

Note that this will only work when you're using the web interface! third-party clients do not (to the best of my knowledge) have any way of knowing this is supported :(

The Mastoverse at large has many blind and partially sighted users who would still love to engage with your creative content!

We strongly encourage use of image alt text to describe the images and videos you upload, and a lot of people won't boost ('retweet') content with no alt text.

After adding an image or video to your toot, you can click 'Edit' on the media to enter a description.

Media that doesn't have alt text will have a little blue dashed border around it in the feed.
