Since I created Moa I’ve struggled with the idea of supporting absentee fediverse users. I’m considering changing things so that you’ve got to post to your masto account every so often to keep the account active. Maybe track last toot and tweet dates and if they get too far apart then disable. This would prevent punishing legit infrequent posters.

I set up a Liberapay page to support Moa. If you use it (especially for commercial purposes) please consider donating. 🙏

Two changes:

1) I expanded the conditional crossposting options a bit. You can choose to always post unless “” or “” are present. Or, choose to never crosspost unless “” or “” are present

2) Twitter handles come into the fediverse with a @twitter.activitypub.actor server which makes them work as Activity Pub actors with psuedo-profiles.

If you were having trouble connecting with Moa today please try it again. I believe the issue is fixed.

Ya'll can label me anti-feminist, fascist, rape apologist, sexist, MRA, pervert etc but your entitlement doesn't extend to using my *free* service to work against people I care about. Now you'll just have to post your bad takes twice you lazy asses. (2/2)

I waited a few weeks to decide to ban spinster because I thought banning the whole instance was heavy-handed. I thought maybe some of those users aren't pushing anti-trans ideology and don't deserve to be cut off. After I read the admins' anti-trans essays I decided that anyone who hitches their cart to those horses did so consciously. (1/2)

After thinking about it for some time I've decided that I'm blocking users of spinster.xyz from using Moa. I cannot in good conscious contribute to the spread of anti-trans rhetoric any longer.

🚨 Cross-posting may be delayed today as I migrate Moa to a new server.

A small Moa update: the CW support for tweets is a little more flexible now. If you start your tweet with something like

CW: us pol, mh

Then the corresponding toot will have a real CW with those flags.

If you enjoy discovering new music and you enjoy Mastodon please check out one of my other projects:

The more we use it, the more new music we get to discover. You can't argue with socialism.

@MySexyGirlsPics Hi, Moa is going to be upgraded soon and it will no longer be possible to link more than one twitter account to the same mastodon account. Please disable or delete all but one of your Moa setups so that when the time comes you won't have any interruptions in cross-posting.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

@how Hi there, I'm investigating the issue where Moa can't handle the addresses on your server. There's a problem with your web server's redirect support.

If you run `curl -IL 's10y.eu/.well-known/webfinger?'`

you can see that a 301 is returned but the redirect URL is missing the query parameters. The return code is a 400 and there is no data returned. Unless this redirect is working Moa can deference the usernames.

Running `curl -IL 'ps.s10y.eu/.well-known/webfing'`

works as expected.
