@hippolyte write.as blogs federate directly to mastodon. i've seen people use their blogs as a method of sharing posts longer than a couple of toots could handle and then post the link/boost the blog's mastodon profile
@iLikeAltitude oh wow, but I guess people on mastodon don't want their feed to be flooded with superlong posts. This being said, you can always put cw on your long posts.
I tried Diaspora* before discovering mastodon, but there were a few things I disliked. First, chronological order with long posts is annoying, you're flooded with stuff you don't care about, and also I didn't like the community I managed to get into on this software, but that may just be bad luck.
