New people 🙂 Welcome
Feel free to say something and mention me: @JohanEmpa to get a conversation going.
Perhaps try a "hello mastodon" as your first toot/post. Or say something about yourself or why you are on Mastodon now?
Just ask me if there is anything you want to know.
Tips: On the web you can turn on advanced mode to see more than one column.
Tusky is a good app for Android
The team behind "Riot" renamed their messenger to "Element" last year.
- pretty good move
I was a bit on Twitter yesterday, during the riot on Capitol hill.
To me it looked like misinformation and disinformation was spreading fast. The trending hashtags seem to amplify this. Perhaps the algorithm too.
Imagine if all people was on Mastodon and Twitter didn't exist, would the misinformation problem be just as big?
Mastodon also has the ability to add image descriptions to your media posts, and we highly recommend you add them whenever possible.
When you upload an image, simply click the "Edit" button to be able to change its crop and add a description. It doesn't have to be too detailed, even a single sentence to get the idea across is helpful.
This goes a long way to helping make our community more accessible to folks who use screen readers.
A reminder that Mastodon has tools such as block, mute, and "Hide Boosts" to help you curate your experience, and we recommended you use them.
Is there someone who appears in your timelines often who you'd rather not see? Feel free to mute/block! A hashtag/topic that one person won't stop talking about? Filter it! A person who boosts way too much for your liking? Go to their profile, click the "…" button, and select "Hide boosts!"
Make this the social experience *you* want!
Remember when everything was cake?
Maybe I present you the "everything is lego food" instead ❤️
