Search is different on Mastodon 🔎 You can't just search for a specific word or phrase. And that is a conscious design choice.

You can ONLY search for:
#️⃣ Hashtags
🙋 Usernames
🌐 URLs (of users or specific posts)

This helps combat harassment and users being targeted for their toots. It helps foster a safe space 🤗

If you do want to talk openly on a topic, use a hashtag! Or join a discussion happening on your feeds. But most importantly, stay safe
