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
