@rjt I just realized I solved the wrong problem. The problem is the Mastodon link parsing includes the closing > that I wrap the links in 🤦♂️ I was very tired, and saw a linking issue and immediately assumed it was breaking the character limit. I'll roll it back when I'm more awake.
@sotd has been updated to use shortlinks! Unfortunately some URLs exceeded the character count, which meant some song links were getting cut off.
Also, sorry for the downtime with SOTDbot this weekend! My bots don't handle graceful reconnects at present. @sotd should resume tooting posthaste.
Just a friendly reminder, if you make a bot that interacts with users, remember to respect #nobot directives in profiles :)
Just hooked up SOTDbot from the Tilde.town IRC to Masto :D @sotd will toot SOTD updates from townies, so you can listen along. :)
"But cargo might be fast enough if you need to unmarshal it into a parking space and realize it's not going up." @eq and I fused together by a bot.
