This is a PSA

Please remember people:

- Replace twitter.com by a 'nitter' instance - it allows you to read stuff on the bird site without the annoyances.
github-wiki-see.page/m/zedeus/

- Replace reddit.com by a 'teddit' instance in the same way
codeberg.org/teddit/teddit

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

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 I get the intent, but do any of the Nitter instances guarantee link stability over time?

I'd rather link as directly to the content as possible, so that the link doesn't depend on a 3rd-party service that might shut down in a year or two, and leave all my posts full of dead links.

Maybe Wayback Machine links would be preferable to some random Nitter instance? They seem to be in it for the long haul.

@kadin

That's a valid question, but nitter instances are usually long lived and follow the link format of twitter.

Hence nitter.net/some/link will be equivalent to other.nitter.org/some/link therefore giving you a long-term access to the same content.
