~ HOW TO INTERACT WITH A TOOT THAT HASN'T REACHED YOUR INSTANCE YET ~
(because it's a question I see a lot from new users)

1) Right-click on the timestamp to copy the toot's URL or open it in a new tab.

2) Paste the URL of the toot into the search bar in the Mastodon web UI, then press enter.

3) The toot will appear in the search results and you can boost or reply from there.

@a_breakin_glass Looks like it's exactly the same - get the post's URL from the timestamp, and then search it in the Mastodon web UI search box. :)

@cassolotl honestly previously I'd just pasted mastodon toot ids into the "statuses" url

@cassolotl I wonder if they should make reply etc. icons on it that use the app protocol like they changed the remote follow to do. 🤔

@InspectorCaracal That sounds like it would be pretty good, yeah!

@cassolotl thankyou that works great. I did wonder if it was possible let alone how to do it

@cassolotl seems like there should be an easier way to do this
