Microblog/Post vs Article/Link/Video/Photo
Microblog/Post is similar to the posts you would make in Mastodon/Akkoma and the like, difference being its linked to magazines.
On the other hand, Article/Link/Video/Photo options are similar to reddit/lemmy threads.
Articles are threads without a main link.
