So, interesting notion, probably some of you already know: boosts ("re-toots") can be deleted by clicking on the 🔄 symbol. However, if the boost has crossed the border to another instance, it cannot be deleted from there!
You can only delete boosts from your own instance. They will still appear to your followers who follow you from different instances!

Dear fellow #Mastodon users. Please be patient with the people creating Mastodon and GNU Social.

Writing software takes time, and the teams working on these applications are very small.

Most of them are also wearing many hats. Some are students, others have full time non-Mastodon jobs. Some admin instances in addtion to writing code.

The Twitter kitchen probably has more people working in it than the entire #Fediverse. Please adjust your expectations accordingly! 😄
