Unsolicited Advice to new Twitter/Facebook migrants Show more
On twitter, retweeting is a weapon in a culture war, where combatants vie for the loudest following. You retweet to add volume to the battle cries of your team.
On the fediverse, boosts are for sharing posts with your friends. Nobody's keeping score, louder is not winning, battle cries are just noise. Preaching to your choir is spam.
Don't boost something just because you agree with it. Boost something because your friends would be interested.
