Kinda sad that we never figured to hook "Verified" ✅ status to rel=me.
Can we please do that? It's good and amazingly simple. #relme
So I wanted to finally implement deleting. But we all know Mastodon's killer feature is "Delete & re-draft", so of course I need that too.
But. I had not expected just how much work that is. Re-using uploaded images and all. Christ, what have I got myself into?
I was going to push out a new beta very soon, but, uh, might be a little while still?
Mastodon 2.5 released: Highlights from the changelog
Good morning. Yesterday I wrote a post that tries to distill a variety of reasons to give #Mastodon a try.
It’s written for a general, non-technical audience in mind. I’d love to hear any feedback you have.
Hi! I'm making Tusk, a rather nice Mastodon client for iOS. If you want to test, sign up at https://tusk-boarding.herokuapp.com 😁
One of my favorite #AppleWatch features/tips: my normal face is Modular, with lots of complications for things like the day’s tasks, weather, notes, etc.
But on days off, I often like to switch my Watch face to something relaxing like the Photos face, with my Favorites album synced. I really enjoy seeing a random favorite photo every time I raise my wrist.
Sub-tip: you can quickly switch Watch faces by swiping from the left or right edge.
“Disable replies” feature
It's like an enforced , basically!
"If someone is posting something personal/controversial/etc in order shoutout/vent/etc about without the aim of starting a conversation, it could be useful."
If you're into it and you have a Github account, go add your 👍. If you don't have a Github account, give it a boost. ✨
(This is not one of my feature requests, just one that I liked.)
Yet another new beta version of Toot! is out! This time, it's mostly small improvements and bugfixes.

* Toned down CW.
* Better display of direct messages on toot screen.
* Show name of app on toot screen.
* Copy text of toots.
* Hashtags with non-ASCII characters should work now.
* Various other bugfixes.

I've just pushed out v2.5.0rc2 in preparation of the final v2.5.0
It's the 99th release... It would be nice if the next one was v2.5.0 so it would be the 100th one
Before today, I knew: the reason Twitter was originally limited to 140 characters was so it could be transmitted over SMS (which was limited to 1120 bits, or 160 7-bit characters).
TIL: the reason SMS is limited to 160 7-bit characters is because Friedhelm Hillebrand, who was the chairman of the non-voice services committee within the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM), found that a) the average sentence was <160 characters, and b) that matched the average postcard.
