I am really glad when people add alt text to images on Mastodon.

My internet is so damn slow, that images never really load (i turn them off anyway), but at least I can get a sense of what it is from the text ^____^.

@rek I'm honestly impressed by how detailed some of the alt texts are.

@oblomov Yea! Some of them are rly lovely, too. Love this article about alt text as poetry: eyebeam.org/alt-text-as-poetry (i have it saved, cause i share it so much haha~)
