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.

@flancian @mattcropp @Matt_Noyes @nicksellen @Jon_Envisioneer @emi @michaelafisher
Does quoting from #Twitter as a source for an in your toot used information count?
PS: is it really to much to ask to use
nitter.net/ or tweets.newsbots.eu/
if you #retweettwitter.
A hashtag to indicate that would also be great, but #retweet is often used to ask for #boost|ing, and RT is something altogether different.

@blueplanetslittlehelper @mattcropp @Matt_Noyes @nicksellen @Jon_Envisioneer @emi @michaelafisher hi, Birgit! Nice to meet you.

Sorry but I didn't quite get your proposal or question; I'm unsure what Nitter is for in this context. Could you please explain?

Hi @flancian!
"If you crosspost from twitter to mastodon I would really appreciate it if you marked your account as a bot" - even if one only quote something from a Twitter source?
Links using
nitter.net/ or tweets.newsbots.eu/ allows one to see a referenced tweets without going to Twitter directly (see mas.to/@blueplanetslittlehelpe or posts by @Greenpeace).
A consistent hashtag to indicate retweeting would be useful, but #retweet is now sometimes used to indicate #boostplease.

@blueplanetslittlehelper @Greenpeace Ooh, got it! Thank you. Yes, that makes sense, I'm with you. I think there is no good general reason not to want to see any content originally from elsewhere, right?
