and not a subtoot: if you are streaming a thread of toots from brain to keyboard, you can set your first reply as "Unlisted", and then reply to each successive toot. It'll keep the replies from overwhelming people (incl. your local timeline), but interested parties can still follow the thread.

@proactiveservices Thanks for this. The crucial words are "first reply". So the first toot is listed.

OTOH why not use a blog (e.g. at instead and boost that from your mastodon account? I think that encourages better writing because the whole thing can be edited before posting.
