hi new users! this is a reminder that mastodon's culture is NOT the same as twitter's-- you're entering a community, not a void, and we're reading your posts and want to interact with you
please don't treat this place as "twitter but with a new ui." the influx has been overwhelming for some of us who've been around for a while, we're happy to see new faces but please be considerate of the people around you as you join this space. thank u
@Finz in general masto is not a great place to go viral, for me getting more than ~5 boosts on a post is overwhelming and i have to mute it. (i'm suffering rn)
i think of it as a more intentional, slow place to have conversations with people. not like, a place to drop quippy boostable content™ every few hours
