@lilithsaintcrow indeed you are. It just helps a lot because screen readers don't have a skim read function as such, so if a toot starts with a lot of handles, I have to wait for those to read before I see the body of the toot.

FUN FACT:

I use Mastodon as my primary public social network not because of the increased default character limit (though it is nice) but because this place has a community of people I care about and people I can actually interact with without necessarily feeling like I am wasting their or my time.

There are other things that keep me here but that's the first thing that comes to mind.
