Just followed a Pixelfed (@pixelfed) account from Mastodon. I am now sure I love the fediverse

It links to ", which seems wrong. I assume there's an HTML mistake somewhere.

@cocoron sorry to @ you out of the blue, but I have a question.

If you had thousands of dollars to donate to climate change causes, how would you spend it? I'm pretty ignorant about what methods are effective and wondered if you might know more.
