@everyone doesn't exist folks, posts can mention someone without their handle appearing in the post and each of this jackass's latest however many posts all hidden-mention 250 accounts

hidden mentions being surprising to everyone is a direct consequence of mastodon putting twitter semantics on a protocol that does not care for those semantics

i know it's cliché to immediately blame mastodon as soon as some jackass climbs on stage and takes a shit on the crowd below but

am i wrong?

i should have said that they each mention a different set of 250 accounts, to be clear

@codl neat. So basically a fediverse magic trick.

@codl and not explaining a damn thing! A big part of the budget should be invested in making content generalizing how the Fediverse works!!

@codl kind of unavoidable consequence when you have many apps and don't expose any metadata via client api

@codl curled their outbox, used jq to only get the to arrays, deleted the ones at the end of the last page that weren't relevant, did more jq stuff
