thinking about the #280 again. On Twitter, some jokes come packaged as short threads that work primarily to hide the punchline, creating a synthetic (but well functioning) delivery timing.
@coryw I see a way to do this that I noticed in the federated timeline on this instance - use content warnings. Set the joke up in the warning text, punchline as the hidden text?
@bhtooefr If you were conscious of what was happening, you could just use short toots.
