@Gargron I know, that's basically my point: When we look at Mastodon as an ecosystem, there is no need for formatting, because we are within our lovely 500 chars. The main reason why formatting would be required is because people don't make it to send their ActivityPub properly.
A lot of people in the PR highlighted how much more accessible things would become. Knowing our Mastodon "shitposters" I guess we'll see whole tootes made of 1 headline each per character… Hooray accessibility.
