This is a PSA

Please remember people:

- Replace by a 'nitter' instance - it allows you to read stuff on the bird site without the annoyances.

- Replace by a 'teddit' instance in the same way

- Put your annoying newspaper link after '' for the same result.

If we all work together on this one, we can all make Mastodon a better place!

Thank you!

This is the end of this PSA.

@ParadeGrotesque no, actually, because this can obfuscate the sources of information and prevent people from making informed decisions about what they want to see. If someone wants to use nitter or teddit or whatever, they can use the original link with those services themselves.



Most of the time, Mastodon helpfully includes a short summary of the link, so you can get info on what's at the end of the link before clicking on it.
