> Microsoft workers are calling on the giant tech company to cancel its nearly $480 million U.S. Army contract, saying the deal has "crossed the line" into weapons development by Microsoft for the first time. They say the use of the company's HoloLens augmented reality technology under the contract "is designed to help people kill."

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?

Allow @NPRinvisibilia to explain:
Have you added any changes to your server's #MastoFork?

Feel free to drop a link and message on this issue. And we'll have a look! Small changes are as welcome as big ones.
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!
where's the edit of #RussianDoll but instead of "Gotta Get Up" it's "All Star" by Smash Mouth
