so boosting is now republishing?
@oct2pus oh, by the way, german, among other things, is case sensitive. wonderful cursed language.
to noun you capitalize, so Tröt is a different word from tröt. Maybe. Neither are in the fuckin dictionary
@oct2pus you may notice that my german posts are all lowercase. This is because I am a no good street punk who doesn't really care to make much sense
@n remember the tag line about mastodon being twitter without nazis was a pretty bad selling point in hindsight i cant remember if the community kept repeating it or if a journalist decided to say it.
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.
