If you see someone on mastodon.social using a cross-poster from Twitter and never actually posting/responding here, please report them. I think that can be reasonably considered spam.


@Gargron I'm just starting to use Mastodon and doing a fair amount of reposting from my other social networks. Problem or no?

@TCampbell I don't know what you mean by reposting but if it's not cross-posting automatically it's not about you

@TCampbell @Gargron there is a program that was built to relay all your content from twitter to mastodon automatically. There were some settings to do it in a bit of a more limited fashion and to also send from mastodon to twitter, but most people simply used it to relay content from twitter to mastodon without any filtering or constraints. This matters because everything is out of context and nothing is tagged or CW'd.

@TCampbell @Gargron the Mastodon community is generally ok with folks that are actively engaged on both sites (like myself). I’ll hop between sites all day and often posts things on both sides.
