As you settle into Mastodon, be sure to learn the lingo:
- "toot": a tweet
- "tusking": starting a pointless fight with another user
- "woolly": going viral, as in "wow, that toot really went woolly"
- "extinction event": when a whole instance goes down
@nolan I would reserve "extinction event" for when the last Tweep migrates to these moisty pastures.
@spiderrobotpig ohhhh didn't even notice! Tusky doesn't do that, looks like fruit users have a different experience from droid users :)
@nolan maybe each instance will have it's own slang? cybre.space tooters florp, they don't fav things...
@nolan I've been using "Tusking" for blocking.
And "boosting" should be "trumpeting".
