Friendly reminder: this isn't Twitter.

If you're mad about something? Use a content warning.

If you want to write a long post? Use a content warning.

Don't share screenshots of toots that make you mad, and don't follow people that make you mad.

You've left the swirling fire vortex of rage birdsite created to keep investors and advertisers happy. Live free! Live well 👍

@jamie I could have added "don't be a pedant!" 😜

I figured as I was targeting folks from birdsite who aren't used to reading posts with CWs I'd indulge myself on this one.

@bobstechsite This needs to be boosted everywhere. Important stuff. We owe it to ourselves to focus on the positive.

@bobstechsite this is a quality post and I love this network already

Also, there are no ads - and everything is in actual chronological order.

@bobstechsite Idk why twitter doesn't have a content warning system just for spoilers and stuff.

@bobstechsite great too but I have to disagree on the "long toot" rule 📝

@bobstechsite Oh, I didn't know about the practice to CW a long post, thanks. I tend to write excessively long ones : ) What CW should I use ? «Long post» or something describing its content ?

I've seen both - a long notice and a summarizing bit so people can make an informed decision of whether to read it now, bookmark it for later, skip past it, etc.

@mikeburns @bobstechsite Ok, thanks for the tip ! I'll try and think about it next time I write a 2000+ characters post ^^

@bobstechsite I never thought of using cw just for long posts, but I'll consider it. I figured the nature of the platform was long (but still limited) posts, and if you needed a warning for long but natively-supported post lengths, you'd just not be here. But that's not very inclusive.

@bobstechsite Wait... 500 chars is long?

Maybe... Blog post + link?
