As you settle into Mastodon, be sure to learn the lingo:
- "toot": a tweet
- "tusking": starting a pointless fight with another user
- "woolly": going viral, as in "wow, that toot really went woolly"
- "extinction event": when a whole instance goes down

I would like more attestation of these. Toot I know, but I've never heard the others. Let's call it research: can you find me examples from before you posted if other people using these words?

@bstacey @nolan @DialMforMara Wait, people actually use those terms? I was SURE the original post was sarcastic...
