Do you wish there was a way to type your favourite emoji without stopping to use the picker?

βœ… In Mastodon, you can choose an emoji directly by typing : (colon) and then a keyword or name of the emoji you want.

For example, :sun will bring up all the emoji containing the word "sun". Choose the one you want with the arrow keys, then press enter.

Nice idea. #Plogging is a combination of jogging with picking up litter (Swedish verb plocka upp (pick up) + jogga (jog)).

And there is even an app for that.

It’s not without reminding #OpenLitterMap openlittermap.com, but this one is more about observation, whereas plogging is really taking action.

The new version of #StreetComplete (v26) has a fantasic new feature. It's much faster when download quests, and now will show you all the quests in an area. It's made things so so much faster & easier to use.
