The Mastodon/Twitter crossposter is controversial. Quite a few Berners have set up accounts on Mastodon, hooked up this crossposter, then left, never to return.

They flood our feeds with their tweets and retweets, but never spend time on Mastodon getting to know other users, or building the community.

So if you decide to use this, please consider setting the options so your Mastodon toots go to Twitter, but NOT the other way around.





Here's an example of the garbage effect of the cross-poster when it's being misused.

Even before you tooted I thought of posting one of my Tweets, but instead opted to re-create it.


I don't get it. The tweets seem fine. I cross post and I mention that I do with my tweet.
I also leave a trail that it's from Mastodon. ?????
