Mastodon's desktop site has two different interfaces: single column (like Twitter) and multicolumn (like Tweetdeck)

You can switch between these interfaces by going to:

Preferences > Appearance > Enable Advanced Web Interface

(selecting this activates multicolumn, unselecting activates single column)

Multicolumn has four columns by default, but you can add more, which may suit people with very wide monitors.

Mastodon instances have different visual themes available.

You can change your theme by going to Preferences > Appearance > Site Theme, then click on Save Changes

Most instances have a dark theme, a light theme and a high contast theme. However, instance admins can add more themes and some offer many different colour schemes.

If you want more themes to be offered on your instance, contact your admin.

You can type emoji on Mastodon without using the picker.

Type : (colon) and then a keyword, then select what you want from the pop-up menu

(For example, typing :sun will bring up emoji containing the word "sun".)

Of course!

But linux Is better and open source is the way to go as it's proven to be secure and a sustainable development practice.

Manjaro is a great distro in my opinion, and it is a blend of stability and cutting edge.

Facebook/Instagram are pressuring users to allow their apps to track them to keep the apps "free of charge".

Reminder: these apps were never free — giving up your data is worth a lot.

All links count as 23 characters, even if they are longer.
