Starting to think they do more harm than good, at least when the direction is twitter->mastodon. Yeah it lets twitter folks try mastodon without committment, but that lack of committment is also a problem. It also lets a lot of twitter bs seep into the fediverse.
@timw4mail@Gargron Generally? Crossposting creates a "primary" and "secondary" network in your mind. If you pick Twitter for its shorter character limit, then you are still indirectly deciding that Mastodon is worth "less" psychologically.
