(en) Hey folks! We've been noticing that twitter seems to be lightly locking accounts when there's only "automated" access. If you have the crossposter connected to your account, log in the web interface from time to time to avoid this from happening.
(pt) Oi, povo! Notamos que o twitter parece estar travando levemente contas só com acesso "automatizado". Se você tem o crossposter conectado a sua conta, entre na web de tempos em tempos pra evitar o problema.
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. 🙏
2) Twitter handles come into the fediverse with a @twitter.activitypub.actor server which makes them work as Activity Pub actors with psuedo-profiles.
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)
