If you crosspost from twitter to mastodon I would really appreciate it if you marked your account as a bot (see superuser.com/a/1439495 for explanation of the effect).

If it's a dual purpose account (i.e. crossposting AND direct posting), then I would appreciate it if you created a separate account for the twitter crossposting and marked that as a bot account.

Crossposted tweets appear as a mess of broken links, missing threads, and the account is often unresponsive to replies.

Thanks!

@nicksellen Maybe something to consider adding to the code of conduct? (to get all bureaucratic)

@Matt_Noyes totally! I don't find it so bureaucratic even, just helping people understand what kind of community behaviour is appreciated.

Maybe worth a loomio discussion/vote? I don't know if I feel the energy to create one though :/

@nicksellen I wonder what my fellow community ops team members think?

The question: should Social.Coop have a policy along these lines:

If you crosspost from twitter to mastodon mark your account as a bot (see superuser.com/a/1439495 for explanation of the effect).

If it's a dual purpose fediverse account (i.e. crossposting AND direct posting), then please create a separate account for the twitter crossposting and mark it as a bot account.

@flancian @Matt_Noyes @nicksellen @Jon_Envisioneer @emi @michaelafisher I remember a while back I asked someone to adjust their crossposter to just crosspost their tweets, as it was posting both their tweets and retweets, which kinda overwhelmed the timeline.

I'd definitely be onboard with a more explicit policy on that front...

@mattcropp @Matt_Noyes @nicksellen @Jon_Envisioneer @emi @michaelafisher right -- either a policy or better tools?

I think ideally this would be managed by the reader's client, but I understand that's difficult. In general, though, I wouldn't go and ask someone to post less of X in general; I'd rather have the tools to filter X.

@mattcropp @Matt_Noyes @nicksellen @Jon_Envisioneer @emi @michaelafisher if someone boosted a lot of toots at the same rate, would the impact on the timeline be equally bad or better?

@mattcropp @Matt_Noyes @nicksellen @Jon_Envisioneer @emi @michaelafisher oh, I didn't know that, thanks.

Then I'll disable automatic cross-posting of retweets in moa.part to match these semantics.

@mattcropp @Matt_Noyes @nicksellen @Jon_Envisioneer @emi @michaelafisher oh, actually it seems moa.party already does something reasonable: retweets are posted as 'unlisted'.
