I'm starting to think that non-English speakers should start a separate #Trunk instance. What do you think? Let me know if you're interested and I'll help you get it installed and everything.

@JPEG also when I open e.g. this: xoxo.zone/@gretchenmcc/1009597 I don't see how to open it in safari or chrome. Am I missing something?

Hi
@JPEG, from your timeline this seems to be the feedback channel. I have some :)
Tried to open a link to something right now from here (mastodon.social/@ebassi/100957), goes nowhere and doesn't offer options to open in other stuff. Maybe something to look into.
