Gibt es einen Routenplanner, bei dem man sagen kann: versuche bitte alle 2 bis 2,5 Stunden eine Pause (idealerweise an ner Raststätte/Autohof) mit einzuplanen? #followerpower

New people of Mastodon:
Welcome! I'm happy you are here! Here are some tips for accessibility
You can add a description to an image you post by clicking on the image before you hit TOOT! Type in a brief description. It helps people who use screen readers to know what the image is.
When using a hashtag:
Not good: #hereismyhashtag
Screen readers garble the first one, but can read the second one because of the capitalization.
Wo bekommst du denn dein Material zum painten her?
Bin alt! Musste googeln wofür #cw steht.....🤦♂️
The #Fediverse is not a secure messenger.
Mastodon doesn't claim to be and is transparent about it. Evil instance admins could extract your DMs from the database and therefore are technically able to read them.
The same fact is true for most messengers, email, SMS, Twitter, Google Hangouts, Skype, Riot, IRC…
Private and confidential conversations require a platform with *mandatory end-to-end encryption*. Social media and most messengers are technically incapable to protect your privacy.
Die Suche nach Benutzern bei #Tootdon geht bei mir irgendwie nicht. Halte ich es falsch?
A friend of mine sent me this. I know it's at Twitter, and I know it may be unwelcome here, but more information is best, when it comes to making decisions and choices.
(tl;dr: Mastodon may not be the best choice for you, especially if you're a vulnerable or marginalized person).
@wilw I've seen this thread and a few others pointing out the same and similar issues with the platform, and I think it's important that everyone here be fully aware of the risks and limitations. I think everyone should pay attention and do some research into the moderation and administration teams of various instances in order to find one they feel will suit them. Many of the impersonation and similar concerns are the same issues which have always been present in distributed systems like email.
