Accounts who crosspost from twitter are boring


depends really. If someone has written a bot that post stupid stuff onto mastodon only - then I can accept it. But an account that crosspost from twitter (and also tagging other obvious twitter account) is really boring

@selea yeah sure, bots are fun. I was meaning human accounts posting automated stuff, like RSS or crossposts.

@selea Good news: twitter broke something in the cross-posting service and I can't be bothered to care.


Really? I just saw a post from an account, and it triggered me

@selea I was speaking of my own account. The cross-posting dealie was broken after I was un-suspended and I thought 'eh'.


Personally, I am not really a fan of crossposting. Exception can be made if someone have a blog, writes articles or post nice photos or something.

@selea @Codex404 the downside is: if you react on the blog, photo etc you get no answer. Crossposters dont really participate, they just post.

Maybe it's an idea to make those accounts read-only
