by that I mean that the boost and reply etc buttons don't work
I'm so used to tootdon that mastodon on the web is confusing.
when I see "[user] is a user on [instance i'm not on]. You can follow them or interact with them if you have an account anywhere in the fediverse."
there doesn't seem to actually be any way to interact with that user?
