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 "ice age": when there isn't any activity in the entire network of all instances.
@nolan "dinosaurs": other federated networks
So looks like I just recovered from an extinction event.
