question: is .@ necessary on masto to make a toot that starts with an @ show up for all followers instead of just people who follow both you and the person mentioned like on birdsite?
@kinsey If you toot at someone without it being in reply, it's visible to all of your followers.
If you reply to someone, even with removing the @, it will not appear to all of your followers - actually now I'm curious about an edge case here - so you should boost it in that case if you want your followers to see it.
And yet another test, of a more extreme edge case.
