So the Mastodon API has no way of getting character limits? Sorry folks, looks like we're stuck with 500 characters. 😢

@colnkiama there is a well agreed-upon API to get it, but does not implement it

@NekoSock interesting... Do you know what the API is called?

@colnkiama /api/v1/instance may return a 'max_toot_chars", Pleroma does it as well as some Mastodon forks.


Glitch Social, a famous Mastodon fork:

You can also see limits regarding the poll feature there. I would also advise you to check for "max_chars" too as an old version of Glitch used to use it.
