Do not understand why anyone would ever boost one of those cross-posted tweets that has the "RT" text and Twitter links in them.
To be fair I also do not understand why anyone would ever want those cross-posts to exist like that, either.
@Gargron It would be useful to make @email@example.com mentions actually link to the Twitter profile in question...
But I'm guessing that won't happen.
@lychee Client applications can make mentions in any "Social network", including #Mastodon, link to any place. However, Mastodon controls existence of such mentions, unfortunately... and Web interface.
