Follow

What's your opinion of accounts whose toots are all crosspost content from their accounts?

@cosullivan NOOOO!!

I know I am following one who does that I've been meaning to unfollow him but I keep forgetting. It's annoying - crossposting. I am on Mastodon because I don't want to see Twitter haha

@cosullivan I mute accounts that are all crosspost. An occasional crosspost is fine.

@cosullivan My feeling is they're being a bit rude to join, toot their tweets and not interact with the fediverse denizens. I don't follow such accounts.

@cosullivan I guess, having spent a cathartic time muting the lot of them, I can safely say "blissful ignorance"

@cosullivan It is moderate as long as they interact with people in Fediverse, e.g., read reply messages.

@cosullivan I don't know why anyone would do that. But, there's nothing wrong with it.

@cosullivan
I mute.. Here to not see Twitter.. My adopted solution goes the other way around : I can push public post or status from my blog to either fediverse or silo accounts (Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook Pages) with (withKnown.com) open source blog engine #indieweb as if my blog was a mastodon or Twitter client, keeping my activity on the open web and copies of my posts where I want them to sit. - 1/2

@cosullivan (sadly no private, CW, or any fediverse specific integration but it work just great for public toots - 2/2

@rmdes Thank you for your reply. Would you check with the of your before using an account only for purposes, or would you create the account with the hope nobody would care or if they would care, not notice?

@cosullivan
First option sounds best in my view.. In case of the second option usage I would add on top to use moa.party and make all tweets CWs ovet here.. So that people can choose if they want to see it or not..

@cosullivan I'd have to agree with @snowdusk_ . If they're just crossposting everything then they're probably not even interacting with the platform. An occasional crossposting because it's interesting is a different story.
