FYI for the new folks: hovering over an image you're about to upload gives you the option to do two really cool things:
◽ Crop - lets you choose where the center of the image thumbnail is (no more unintentional crotch shots on full-body pics!)
◽ Describe for the visually impaired - several mastodon users use screenreaders and describing your images really helps them out! @PleaseCaption is your friend 👍

The Mastodon bridge tool has got a facelift! https://bridge.joinmastodon.org/
You can sign in with Twitter and Mastodon to find Twitter friends in the fediverse. You can also send it to your Twitter friends, as it will show them their friends on Mastodon and point them to where they could make an account!
