So… what even is MilkTea, Thom?!

MilkTea is an Android app for Misskey.

Misskey is an open source, decentralized social media platform that's free forever!

Why do I need this tutorial?

Compared to other fediverse frontends and apps, MilkTea doesn't open the thread when you tap on the post/toot. This can be confusing for users.

So how do I unroll the thread?

There's an overflow menu next to the "reactions". In there is a link to Details. Selecting this will take you to the whole thread in a new page.

Cool, no?!

MilkTea is a nice "featureful" app that I occasionally use for Calckey↗ (a misskey fork that's full of fun), but unrolling (to steal a Twitter term) is unintuitive if you're coming from Twitter or Mastodon.

I hope this helps someone 😎



In almost all cases, the comments section is a vile cesspool of Reply Guys, racists, and bots.

I don't want to have to deal with that kind of hell so I don't have a comments section.

If you want to continue the conversation, you can always hit me up on CalcKey↗ (which is not a vile cesspool of Reply Guys, racists, and bots).
