remember that Unlisted posts can still be seen by people who follow you! we feel this is a good balance for folks who maintain a presence on both platforms, since it allows people to choose whether to follow or engage with crossposted content.

thank you, we love you a lot! :gaysparkle:

hi folks! it’s a mini , since it’s a hot topic at the moment! a reminder about our crossposting rules on

crossposters are allowed! but, we ask folks to set them to Unlisted by default for posts automatically coming from twitter. this keeps the public TLs clean and cozy and makes it so folks here know if the person they are interacting with is truly on the other end. in addition to the Unlisted setting some folks also add a “from twitter” CW for courtesy

It’s a ! Everyone please welcome our newest staff member, @Manik! We are super excited to have him on the team!!
