idea: ability to add a content warning to a boost.

I know you can make a new toot with a link to the old one and put a CW on that but maybe the interface could take out those manual steps?

Would be neat to be able to add CW to boosts and captions to images in boosts.

I guess this is basically adding quote tweet functionality to mastodon which probably has some good reasons for not being around? hmmm....

With flailing uptake, increasing numbers of users taking up use of #manjaro and the #debian based OS #ubuntu instead, and popularity of #Microsoft #windows10 soaring among lay users, has the commonly seen to be 'elitist' #archlinux had its day? Are there #ethics concerns in its decline? What about among #women? #arch #linux

Why did it literally take centuries for scientists to identify locusts and grasshoppers as the same creatures? It could have something to do with our own sense of self.

have you ever noticed that someone post a screenshot of text without providing an image description, preventing you from being able to read it? or maybe they posted a huge amount of text that just can't possibly be described with the image description feature?

simply tag @OCRbot in a direct reply to the image. it will download the image and scan it using tesseract OCR to output the text contained in the image!

because OCRbot runs on fedi.lynnesbian.space, it has a character limit of 65535, so even the longest images should work OK!

check the reply to this image to see it parsing the attached screenshot!
