I'm genuinely surprised by how many people joining Mastodon from Twitter seem unfamiliar with using URLs to give the address of a web page, particularly when that web page has their new Mastodon account.
The whole *point* of the web is that every page has its own address, so you don't need to resort to “Look for ‘Grey the earthling’ on the Queer Party website!!!”
@greytheearthling It is straight up amazing how tech illiterate the majority of users are. Similar to the URL thing, SO SO SO SO many people also cannot get their head around a file system, or that a given URL is determined by a file structure. Actually sort of a pain point professionally. Not really sure what the answer is, as tech literacy as a requirement for participation is functionally a problematic barrier. But also, these things can drive a person bonkers.
