@mastonaut is it possible to set a higher character limit when posting? One of the instances I use supports more than 500 characters per post and it’s not reflected in mastonaut.

@srxavi Hey! Sadly this is not a standard Mastodon feature exposed by the API. However this is a feature that is gonna be included in the next update as a local per-account setting you can set manually from the preferences window.

@mastonaut @srxavi You could check for the value of "max_toot_chars" from the "/api/v1/instance" endpoint. This is provided for example by Pleroma. Only when this field is not present, a manual override would be needed.
