The removal of toot feels insecure, like mastodon needs to be taken more seriously.


@oct2pus Wait, we lost Toot? This is devastating

Eugen posted about it a while ago. Someone who donated to the project wanted posts to be called toots and for shares to be called boosts, however, that was never what Eugen wanted. #Mastodon

@thebiologist1117 It feels like we're losing a bit of the communal spirit with that change. Even more with that backstory.

Eugen's reasoning for the change was that "posts" and "reblogs" are easier for more people to understand. He did regret losing the branding for it though (If I remember correctly).
