I guess a pretty big drawback to being decentralized is there can't really be share URLs for mastodon since we can't really know which instance you're using
@danrabbit The URL is always on the instance of the content creator, no?
@hergertme Yeah but if I’m in a native application and I want to share content to mastodon, now I need to know which instance that account is on ahead of time. With Twitter since there’s a central server I can just use a twitter.com/shareorwhatevever=bodytext
Generalistic and moderated instance.
