Did you know that you don't need to use link shorteners (bit.ly, etc.) on Mastodon? All links, no matter how long, only count for 23 characters against your 500 limit!

(And since link shorteners are bad for user experience and break the web, there's almost no good reason to use 'em! 😄)

This article goes into detail and explains a lot of how it works here.

Some things seem different (e.g. no global search, no ‘retweet’ with comments). But once you read the rationale behind it it makes sense.

*definitely* worth reading if you’re planning on sitting around here for a while.
