protip(?): if you add ".rss" to the end of your profile url, you get a feed of all your public and unlisted toots that you can then plug into ifttt in order to cross-post to birdsite, with links on every one to remind people that you're actually on a much better website. here's how it looks on mine.
i used to just let my twitter be empty but i think there's value in letting people know that i'm actually very active in a microblogging-type space and not just a tumblr goblin
@KittyUnpretty Thanks for sharing the idea. I have an almost forgotten IFTTT account which I'll be dusting off to try setup this. Good stuff, as I don't even have a Twitter application installed anymore anywhere, but I still keep the account there to log-in using a browser and check what some people I care about are up to bow and then 👍
@kropot @KittyUnpretty @crossposter or @moa_party are both free, there's more free options over here : https://github.com/tootsuite/documentation/blob/master/Using-Mastodon/Apps.md#bridges-fromto-other-platforms
A heads up about the difference between Masto's RSS and Atom feeds: the RSS feed is for federation with other OStatus clients and is subject to change with the whims of GNU Social *only*. The Atom is for public consumption and *any* complaints with it are bugs that the Masto team would like fixed.
So be careful depending on the RSS feed.
@KittyUnpretty after one week of using this feature, I found out a few interesting bits.
1. The RSS and Atom feeds are undocumented, but there are several issues in the main Mastodon repo about improvements
2. The RSS feed contains all toots, even those marked as unlisted, and replies, so it's not a great fit for posting to the bird site, unless some more filtering is done in IFTTT
3. Of all toots shared back as tweets, none was retweeted or favorited (but that is anedoctal)
@steko i don't mind about unlisted—that's only ever been about not showing up in the public timeline, which twitter doesn't have anyway, and if i wanted them private i'd post followers-only. it doesn't include boosts and mentions, which is the most important part for me.
