Make Twitter Great Again

FWIW you might be able to enjoy the Fediverse via a Friendica server (which also interacts with Twitter) if your desktop twitter client isn't hardwired, though likelier to find desktop client/s that suits down amongst joinmastodon.org/apps or just using web-interface. Best wishes anyway

> Doesn't have an app
It does have an app. See https://joinmastodon.org/apps for not only the official app, but also literally dozens of third-party apps.

You're right, the official app is not very mature. There are four other Android apps listed at https://joinmastodon.org/apps. You may like one of those better.

On a more serious note: Given that many user communities in the FediVerse are people conscious of their privacy and of suffering pile-ons by large majorities of outsiders, I wonder how many more examples of this there will be before people start asking the developers for out-of-the-box defaults that simply blacklist all requests that come in with referrer headers containing news.ycombinator.com and other similar "Slashdotting" sites.
It's not beyond the bounds of possibility. Compare https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/issues/15431 .

You know what's weird? The first time the idea of a full search was mentioned was Feb 3 2017. It wasn't implemented at that time, and the first version of Mastodon was released 2016. The "toot" you linked was from May 3 2017. It's almost like a full text search never existed in the first place.2 projects | reddit.com/r/facepalm | 20 Apr 2023

I don't think the Follow button should recommend signing in, at least not as the primary action. It's unlikely to be relevant to a user who just opened the page. I hadn't realized the sign in page doesn't have the server name, maybe it's config dependent because I do see more text when I look at the sign in page for other servers.
I think web based protocol handlers would be the simplest way to solve this and they don't require installing any browser plugin or a central portal (or OAuth). There has been discussion of it but not critical mass to solve the problem for the whole network.
