(I never, ever want to see a boost or a retweet. Totally fine if the message quotes something and comments but if it's just a straight up copy I am not interested.)
What's with all the toots showing up starting "RT"? Are these from people automatically copying Twitter retweet posts into Mastodon? It's a shame they don't show up as native boosts so the filtering works. I'm blocking "RT" as a keyword now, which I guess does double duty for blocking Russian propaganda.
I wrote a blog post about learning that I have a brother, a child my mother gave up for adoption and never told anyone about. I'm sad for the difficulty my mother faced alone but happy to know my brother! https://www.somebits.com/weblog/life/my-secret-brother.html
@diddledani oh it just started working when I manually went to "https://twitodon.erhmahgherd.workers.dev/mastodonAuth" in my browser. (But then I had to log in to tech.lgbt again later.)
I hope this project succeeds, I think it's an important tool for empowering users to reclaim their own data.
@diddledani I'm having trouble using Twitodon, I enter https://tech.lgbt/ for my Mastodon host and the page that loads says "The redirect uri included is not valid." Here's the URL in my location bar with the error:
@diddledani thanks for writing Twitodon, we need a tool like that again! I hope you can avoid Twitter API limitations, I think that's what killed the old Bridge. There might be a way to make the tool work using Twitter's data exports.
Enjoying re-visiting Mastodon; I've maintained an account in a low key way for over four years but it feels fresh and new now. A big part of why is my new instance defaults to a light background single column layout and it's so much nicer than the multicolumn dark thing I'd been using before. Thanks @david
