How do you guys manage your bookmarks/links? I have so many links in firefox i want to sort but don’t know how and the same problem with rss.

Just a suggestion for people who want to cross post from Mastodon to Twitter. Mastodon by default has an RSS feed of your account. Just add .rss to your profile address like this:
