Why are so many in the fediverse against crossposting?
Why does the source of origin matter? The content matters!
@emil i think it's just that so much content auto-crossposted from twitter tends to be junk
@emil and a lot of people have set up a cross-post bot once but don't interact here, that's also pretty annoying
@orionwl Yes monologues are annoying indeed
@orionwl But why they even follow me then? I already lost (I believe 2) followers only because of the fact that I crosspost
*personally* i don't think there's anything wrong with cross-posting your own top-level messages if you're interacting on the platform
(thing like retweets and responses can be annoying though, especially if they're completely out of context here)
It's an interesting one. I crosspost from twitter *occasionally* (like < 5%) because I feel like the main point of this place is to be independent of sites like twitter; but otoh some people auto-cross post and I can see their point of view (they're just interested in disseminating the information).
I don't see too big of an issue; for those whom getting twitter content here is obnoxious somehow, they can just stop following accounts that do it. Seems over the top to me.
@waxwing @orionwl @emil I wonder when people will stop allowing Jack Dorsey to monetize their information.
It seems so basic, informational hygiene, yet I see very smart people support this type of panopticon with nary an objection.
I've never had a Twitter account, and I doubt I ever will. Its about as abhorrent to me as installing a mic-and-speaker "smart" agent in my home.
