okay so someone familiar with Mastodon internals explain this to me:
why does boosting the first and the last post in a thread cause the whole thing to federate properly but just boosting the first one doesn't?
@staticsafe Boosting the last makes it recursively fetch the chain up to the root. Boosting the first just gets you that particular toot.
