Since there’s a lot of new people trying out Mastodon, something to be cautious about: your DMs can be read by admins of your instance and the instance of the recipient, and when your toots cross an instance boundary, it’s possible for your private toots to get boosted. Some of the privacy guards in place on platforms you’ve used before don’t work the same here.
Mastodon is a lot like bojack horseman
- mostly pretty funny but sometimes sad
- will last for about six years
- half of us are animals
