Hello and welcome to some of the new people in town 👋 Sorry if I missed anyone, business is booming these days. 🤯
Have you seen something on your timeline which probably shouldn't be? 😱 Some spam accounts? 🤖 Some uncensored nudity? 🍆🍑 Something worse?! 😵💫😡
Be sure to use the Report function and I'll put on my police cop uniform 👮🚔 and see if they broke the rules , then put on my judge costume 🧑⚖⚖️ and dish out the appropriate sentencing for their crimes...
...which is probably just forcing their content behind a warning ⚠️ or blocking the offending account 🚫 to be honest.
Anyone can sign up to oslo.town so you can just tell your friends to sign up. 👍
But if you want to send them a ✨ special ✨ link to follow your account, then you can create one here: https://oslo.town/invites
The folk at @kommune sent this announcement out on SMS:
Kjære Oslo! Akkurat nå har vi mindre vann enn normalt, og vi trenger din innsats for å spare vann! Dusj kortere, slå av kranen ved tannpuss og unngå vanning av plen. Gjør det for Oslo, så har vi fortsatt vann til de viktigste tingene i våre liv. Les mer www.oslo.kommune.no/vannsparing
TLDR; save water by using less of it.
Official #Mastodon apps now available for iOS and Android ✨
Welcome to some of the new people who haven't yet added a profile picture! 👋
Or you could choose to remain anonymous. 🥷 That's up to you! 🙃
Welcome to some of the new people who have a profile picture! 👋 Hope you can all get to know each other a little, like the neighbours you pass on the street and never know if to say "hei" to! 🙂
A few years ago I made this flow chart of which Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!
So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.
This is why it's important to boost good posts and use hashtags - the fediverse is fragmented and harder to search by nature.
My Twitter feed is about nothing but #Ukraine at the moment, in here I don't even have a feed yet. Peaceful!
Welcome to all the new users 👋
