Since Mastodon is the elephant app, that makes all other social networks irrelephant.

@realcaseyrollins Well, it's not true. I spend a lot of time moderating.

@Edent You can upload audio to Mastodon. The RSS feed won’t have any itunes-specific tags though. But it should work.

One of the top frustrating things about having a growing audience is that you can not rely on any shared or historic knowledge. Everything has to be said with the assumption that the reader has not seen a single other word from you and knows nothing about you. Every thought or announcement has to inline all the fundamentals.

@IzzyOnDroid @dukethereal @yesfreenet It's massive value to have their official accounts on an official domain. You know it's real. And it's a validation of the platform. If we want them to invest into a separate social media team to manage these accounts, we need to grow the platform further.

Looks like I brought it down to 17 hours for 58,380,465 posts.

@shoq I generally do not recommend using local/federated timelines for content discovery as the noise to signal ratio makes them very inefficient and there is high risk of coming across offensive content due to their real-time nature. The explore tab is a better alternative that highlights quality content that already passed moderation.

@shoq I sympathize with the issue. I am addressing it by adding a language selector to the web app to make the language a post will be published as more visible to the author. However, if a post says it is in English, it will appear when you filter for English.

@shoq The interface does not refer to posts as "toots" anywhere. Your screenshot shows a verb, the only remaining reference to the word. I can't answer for other people. Terminology has momentum. We've been officially calling servers "servers" for multiple years now and you can still hear people refer to them as "instances".

@shoq I'm don't understand the question. That preference says you want to only see posts in English. That post is marked as being in English.

@shoq It means that post is tagged as being English by the author, whether intentionally or not. Since the language is not explicitly displayed anywhere, it is easy to miss this. The new language picker in the web app makes this a bit more visible.
