Want to use a link shortener on #Mastodon?
Don't! All links in Mastodon posts count for 23 characters, no matter how long they really are.
(via @jond )
@r000t @switchingsocial @jond 23 is the length of Twitter-shortened urls.
@JordiGH @switchingsocial @jond Ah
Now I'm trying to figure out the technical reason behind copying Twitter on that
@r000t @switchingsocial @jond No real technical reason, I imagine. Some default number had to be chosen and there was already a "standard" so might as well follow it.
