Remember when we all realized twitter was a terrible place for nuanced political discussions because 140/280 characters is not enough. Well, even 500 is often not enough and so the fediverse kinda sucks for nuanced discussions, too (but less so, because at least the culture is generally less shouty and combative in my experience).
@ink_slinger True enough: that's why one of the most popular tweaks to mainline is bumping up the limit. ^_^ Here, 1500, but some go higher still.
