So there's very little likelyhood this'll actually get seen by any of the current influx of people coming in off of Twitter, but I wonder what their initial reactions are to any of our other deliberate design differences are? Like, the only-hashtags searching, the no quoting, etc.?

@gaditb so I’ll be straight up, no quoting and the flat structure of threads kills me, personally. I love the weird stuff you can do with twitter threading and I think it supports multiple lines of thought better. Replying to something I quote RTd is also important to me. Searching for people is also pretty bad and for better or worse I can’t be fully here until the people from Twitter I follow are. Masto is good but also it’s trying too hard to be twitter except wen it isn’t

@coryw @gaditb I feel like I prefer flat-threading, but Twitter simultaneously rolled out their new threading just as they were getting into the business of suppressing tweets, so that could be why. Depending on which account you use on Twitter, you’ll be shown diff replies & some will be altogether hidden from you, regardless of blocking/muting.

@dhammicmarxist @gaditb SIMILARLY on *this* web site, if you're on a small instance or if you're having a lot of cross-instance chatter, (important) parts of threads are extremely likely to get lost such as in toot-lab.reclaim.technology/@d , something a liiiiittle less likely once you find a thread on Twitter, it usually shows you all of the posts in it.
