...any others to share?
@switchingsocial I didn't know about the setting to show you've moved instances, this is great!
Pinning toots, Introductions, and proper way to share a link to your profile.
The real magic is in the emoji picker
@switchingsocial Wait, that says "RSS Feeds"? God, I missed those. They should be the lifeblood of online social networking -- but they aren't.
RSS is still there, just waiting for us to return to it.
Check this out too:
@switchingsocial thank you for this!
@switchingsocial In the future, could you CW these? Because the way it's written it just takes up the entire column :/

...Or maybe @Toromino was talking about the Autocollapse that Glitchsoc has, that no matter the lenghth of the toot you can fold it so only the toot metadata (sender, time sent, icons, profile pic) plus the first line of the toot is seen? But you can also expand each individual folded toot at any time by clicking a double-arrow icon?

Interesting topic, thanks for the feedback 👍
I hadn't considered this before, I'll try to bear it in mind in future posts.
One challenge is that new users might not get how CWs work on here, they might think the post is just blank, and those are often the users I'm trying to reach.
This would all be easier if the columns weren't so narrow 😕 I wish there was a wider Home column as identical columns are more confusing, you don't know which one is which.
