Remember, you can't search by text on Mastodon, except in your own timeline. That's so harassers can't just find people to attack via a simple search.

Therefore it's important to use hashtags so people can find your stuff, assuming you want them to.

@Nezchan Although the research feature looks really bugged, like only 5 accounts appear when I search one even if there's more of them and I need to specify the instance, it's annoying

@Strabysme

Yeah, I'm not exactly on board with the name search thing only giving a limited number of results either. That's a whole other issue.

@Nezchan thank you. I was wondering why hashtags are a thing. I'll remember to do that from now on
