Want to use a link shortener on #Mastodon?

Don't! :blobsurprised: All links in Mastodon posts count for 23 characters, no matter how long they really are.

True,but this also depends on your client supporting it.
does not seem to know about this and does not allow you to toot in these classes.


In fact, it's false. Mastalab doesn't limit chars. So even if it counts all chars for a link, the real value will be used. Also, you have an option to automatically split your toots.


Not my experience, but I'll check again.
Thanks for clarifying :)
