Okay, it's official: I really hate Mastodon's post-length limit. No other social network software has it. Why do we? ...except for being more like Twitspace, which doesn't really seem like a laudable goal tee-bee-queue-aitch.


tusky (android client) now says i have char limit of 123456

i think (writing) limits helpful

editing can be beneficial (both for readers and writers)

my experience is that many have exalted notions of self-importance which trump other concerns, including clear communication and concern for the reader and their time

also, there are other venues for longer texts.

short (sharp) texts have value too


@js0000 I don't think I've heard of her!
