Language selection is now available in the Mastodon web app. Make sure your posts are seen by people who understand them!

Supports quickly finding the right language with fuzzy search and remembers your most frequently selected languages.

Appealing moderation decisions against your account without having to go directly over e-mail will be possible soon

Who of Mastodon app developers wants to add E2EE messages to their app?

Was thinking it would be nice to dedicate some area of the UI to tips about things people might not know about. For example, that you can move your followers to another account, or that you can export/import a lot of stuff. Don't know where I would put it though. Any ideas?
