Today I learned: If you @ someone in a DM on Masto, it helpfully adds that person to the DM, which I was not at all expecting.

@mmsword Oh dear. Hopefully the blast radius is minimal.

@orrery Thankfully it was a DM saying "Hey, these people are mutual friends of ours and are cool people" so basically the best case scenario possible to learn this in.

@mmsword Oh, good. That could've been a much bigger explosion.


This DM feature should be called "speak of the devil" or possibly "my ears are burning."
