My first Ello post. I'm trying to resist the urge to say, ""Ello, gov'na!" Apparently I failed.
Well, this is sort of interesting. You can put words in bold or italics by highlighting them and selecting B or I, respectively, and you can also highlight to make any text into a link, for example: here's my Twitter profile. Of course, you can type @ before someone's name to mention them. If you start typing a colon followed by a letter (or a number 1 or 8) you'll see some emoji you can put into your post such as etc. And apparently you can type quite a bit more in a single post than you can on certain other social networks. I'm sure there's a lot of other stuff I could read in a FAQ or something, but those are the things I noticed right off the bat. (Edit: Also, you can edit posts. That's cool.)
