Why use content warnings? 

Cos they're fun! Use CWs to:

๐Ÿ‘‰ add a summary or subject for your post
๐Ÿ‘‰ to collapse long posts
๐Ÿ‘‰ or to otherwise provide context or setup for the content

They're commonly used to soften bad news, for sensitive topics like politics, or just to hide the punchline to a joke.

It's a bit of fun and makes the timeline a more pleasant place, so give it a try!

๐ŸŒ The federated timeline is a firehose view of the Mastodon network. But it only includes people that other folks on your instance are subscribed to, so it's not complete

Similarly if you find a profile from another server that seems blank, it could be because nobody's followed them yet. You can click โ€œbrowse more on the original profileโ€ to see more.
