If you're ever in a situation where your toots aren't federating or re federating slowly from one instance and you want to boost them from a different one, you can

- right-click copy-paste the how-long-ago-tooted bit in the upper-right; this will give you a URL for that toot

- search for that URL on the instance you want to boost from

It should come up and you can boost away!

@shura No. Searching for a toot URL lets you show the server a toot without waiting for it to come in normally.

@zigg how long does it come normally? I have an example where posts come several hours!

@shura It's normally fairly quick, but any instance can be overloaded, which can introduce short or long delays. Just depends on the instance load
