Here is a photo and a fascinating article about a seed bag dating back to about AD20 that was found in Arkansas.
The seeds are an extinct variety of domesticated chenopodium (related to quinoa) from North America. The bag is of even more interest to me because it’s whole, and it was made of yucca fiber and bast fiber from the retted inner bark of a tree, probably paw-paw. That is SO COOL.
Two great things you can do to make the fediverse more diverse and interesting:
1) USE LOTS OF HASHTAGS. It's not spammy! It helps people find stuff they're interested in, since the search is intentionally limited to tags to prevent abuse.
2) BOOST THE GOOD STUFF. It gets it into new federated timelines, which is vital for smaller instances with fewer connections. It also helps with hashtag searches, since they only bring up toots known to your instance via follows and boosts.
Please don’t post screenshots of text. Depending on who is seeing it, they could be annoying, hard to read, or impossible to read.
Post links to the text or something you want to quote, and transcribe important parts into your toot.
If a screenshot is unavoidable, use the feature for describing an image with text to transcribe the important part of the text.
Thanks for making the fediverse a friendlier place for everyone. 👍🏻 #mastotips
