@gargron I'm not a fan of adding rich text, but either way, it's small potatoes compared to other, much more significant design choices that I think Mastodon does perfectly.
Filling the niche that Twitter created and then screwed up, is exactly what I want from Mastodon, personally.
I hope Mastodon keeps making choices with that goal in mind, which isn't exactly the same as the goal of giving users more freedom or flexibility.
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
