i’m struggling with the twitter “reply thread” style of posting. someone shares/boosts an interesting post and i have to hunt for the server to get the full story. that doesn’t seem very “federated”.

many instances aren’t limited to the expected 140 characters or whatever the cap is these days. in fact activitypub, the specification, doesn’t set a limit on post size at all. longer posts are possible, will travel as a complete thought, and are probably more accessible, generally.
