More about search
If the crawler does not find an exact result, it looks for similar results. Click on the avatar to access the user, click on the date to access the post on Mastoton. Click on the image to access the original image.
This is pure opt-in: If you are not interested, just do not join the index. If you quit the index, your posts will be removed from the index after 3 months.
Tootfinder uses the public Mastodon API for the profile and the JSON feed. The feeds are consulted on an optimized frequency, indexed in a SQLite database and deleted after 3 months.
