still not 100% certain what this does though. I guess it's like a regular boost for followers exclusively, though I can't see the difference it makes from my dashboard (or my profile page as they're hidden anyway). oh well.
or rather, I realized just now that toot submissions are set to follower only by default after locking your account. I guess it's actually pretty neat, albeit not super obvious.
really wishing more media sharing capable social networking platforms (aside from mastodon obviously) would have some sort of content/spoiler warning tagging feature, but we all know that won't happen any time soon in the name of "encouraging social networking and engagement" on those platforms.
mastodon has spoiled me greatly.
bah, no getting around that download speed. firefox was consistently hiccuping on this file for some reason, hence the reason for switching to wget.
