@martin XD sorryyyyyy I am the culprit right
@martin I can’t decide if it’s a flaw of Mastodon’s or not (not presenting a small preview image of some kind for links) on the one hand it keeps the timeline’s cleaner, but on the other it’s less user friendly/intuitive, in my opinion. I considered putting a content warning as a description but then I’m afraid people won’t even look past the content warning! :(
@shevek foa they'll immediately pass my current filter... ;-)
but altogether i'm not a fan of videos (of [this] kind) on the #internet.. they are missing so many things (such as #ctrl-f and skimming) and feel like a #waste of time with all the intros and outros and ads... it regularly feels like video is not the correct #format to tell the corresponding message, it's just #video because it's #hipp or something...?
@martin Ok. What's your favourite format then?
Well it the depends on what you want to communicate... For some messages, a video is for sure the best channel, but for many other things it would have been better to create an image or deliver it as text, etc...
