pinned toots, implementation opinions #649
first, i would suggest more bio space, as pinned posts are generally used to accommodate inadequate bio space. i think 500 (a toot) or even 750 characters is a much better thing than what we have now.
the other use case is generally to make things easier to share, easier to save things for people who might want to follow you to see. this is, notably, different from the other use. i would recommend, to accommodate this, that there can be multiple pinned toots, so that anyone can have as many as they want. they would, theoretically be viewed just like how toots show up in the profile, and i would even suggest, if there are any (or more than one, with only one pinned toot showing above normal toots) pinned toots, those show instead of the default "all toots of a follower" as the first things they see below the bio.
i would suggest to functionalities for pinning a toot. namely, "pin toot" would add to the end of the list (bottom) and "pin toot (with checkbox checked (to top)) would make it be at the tippity top of the list.
thank you for listening
