I have to say that I'm deeply skeptical that any service like this will really replace Twitter for my purposes, but I'm always open to the possibility -- that is, after all, more or less the attitude I took when I started using Twitter.

@jsnell would a cross posting service help bridge the gap for you, or would that be too complex to manage?

@gnallen Not too complex, but a bit pointless? I find interactions with my audience on Twitter too valuable. I'm not willing to just become someone who pumps content on to a service and never actually interacts. Also at-mentions get messed up, etc.

@jsnell that makes sense. I was thinking more for things like show accounts where you could have them broadcast to multiple places, I hadn’t thought about the interaction model as much.

@gnallen sure, autoposting might work in those cases, but I'd like to see this service grow a bit more before I create a slew of bot accounts to interact with few people.
