I think 23 characters is the length of the link shortener on Twitter.
On Masto you get the same length without having to actually shorten the link.
Link shorteners are a problem for privacy because whoever runs them can monitor link clicks etc. That's why Mastodon doesn't use them.

Gotta love this term: 報復性熬夜 - "revenge bedtime procrastination". It's when you stay up late because between work and family and chores, night is the only "me time" you have, and it doesn't even matter if all you do is waste it on social media - it's the one little piece of schedule *you* control, and it'll happen even if it means you'll be sleep-deprived.
Which is what I'm doing now, and pretty much every night since forever.
