Friends, be careful of what third party Mastodon clients you use. They have different defaults than you are used to on the web client, and most of them are not as thoughtfully developed as the web client. For example: on web if your account is locked, your new posts are followers only by default. On Tootdon, for example, your locked account will default to public posts every time. This can lead to mistakes where you're federating things you'd rather not.


@darius Also be aware it’s gone around that Tootdon carries privacy concerns. I haven’t verified this, though.
