My favorite French person on Ello is @lolobobo. He's been a great beta tester and positive community member. Follow him if you speak French, s'il vous plaît! He even built a couple of great tools that you can use to enhance your experience:
Le PoireauKinorama - A video thumbnail/link generator for Ello that works with Youtube, Vimeo & Dailymotion. Check out the example below
Ellotyper: A rich text editor that generates the markdown code for finely-formatted posts on Ello.
Here's a video of mine on Vimeo, with the preview created by the tool above! Until we add media embeds, this is the best way to post a video
Happy Friday / Joyeux Vendredi
