Useful keyboard shortcuts for the web client that aren't documented in the panel yet, courtesy of @Gargron:
gb -> blocked accounts
gd -> direct messages
gf -> favourites,
gh -> home,
gl -> local timeline,
gn -> notifications,
gs -> getting started panel,
gt -> federated timeline
gm -> muted users,
gp -> pinned toots,
gu -> your profile

And the furries.
The anarchists, hackers, linguists, nationalists, beings...
Be lovely, be unique.

Development is a requirement insomuch as to facilitate more of that.
Google’s leadership has still not spoken to employees about its plans to launch a censored search engine in China.
