Tips to #help Mastodon newbies…

- There is an Atom/RSS feed of your public 🌎 and unlisted 🔓 toots! You can find it at <your profile URL>.atom. Using IFTTT, you can archive these toots in a text file on Dropbox. Especially helpful for searching your own toots.

An instance operator can add their own custom emoji, called emojos. A op creates the flan for us.

If you see emojos you like on another server, you can ask your instance admin to add them. shows all of an instance's emojo.
