Reminder that unlike on Twitter, Mastodon allows for Content Warnings (CW). These let others decide if they have the mental energy to deal with certain topics (politics, current events, bigotry, etc.) rather than you deciding for them.
You don't have to refrain from talking about those subjects here, but please make frequent use of CWs for those of us who use Mastodon as a refuge.
They're also good for hiding spoilers, joke punchlines, and long rambles, but don't forget their primary usage.
