@mattdm Welcome to Fosstodon. Things are slow at first but as you find people with similar interests and follow them, others will follow you.

The custom emoji list is here:
Also see Kev's most awesome blogpost about getting started here:
Good luck and have fun.
After you're settled in, it'd be great if you could verify your username through <link rel=me> on your site, or through a simple link from eg. your Fedora wiki user page.
@mattdm I think the Fediverse should just hijack the word "Tweet". It should be part of our language, even long after Twitter is dead.
"Tweet" can be the word we use for micro-blog messages even on the Fediverse if you ask me.
