Reacting to a single post without reading the thread is the source of so many misunderstandings. We've all experienced it. It takes a little more time, but it's good to slow down anyway. Try reading, and re-reading the post or thread, then think about replying carefully.

@continuation I am finding that the Mastodon iOS client interface is making it difficult for me to know what is the end of a thread. Using this as an opportunity to ask: does anyone know of a way to make this more obvious?


@b_cavello Try the iOS app Metatext, see if you like that better. I did!
