Mastodon offers me something that Facebook, Twitter, and even Discord doesn't: a built-in content warning system and a culture of making sure people *use it*.

Does anyone know where I can get good quality news feeds on this platform? I have a CNN bot I follow, but it's delayed since they're just using an IFTTT kinda time sync.

A big PSA to my moots who are joining here from twitter: You CAN NOT find posts by “word searching”. If you want your art seen you need to include HASHTAGS: Art and MastoArt are the common ones. Make sure to read Curators rules as well!

Hey, new Mastodon friends --

Common content warnings include:

politics (for instance, uspol, rupol, ukpol)
mental health (MH)
violence
physical health (PH, often includes injury)
food
family
protests
CSA
abuse
eye contact (selfies, pets)
transphobia
misogyny
addictions
climate
war
police
holidays
meta (in reference to discussions about Mastodon discourse)

Yes, you can ask for other ones, and people often actually try to cooperate.

Yes, there are ongoing discussions about the ethics of Content Warnings.

No, you don't have to take an extreme position on it, either way. Chill is actually an option here.
