Stop mirroring your Twitter account to the fediverse, especially these retweets of a single picture without any caption or comment.

We used to say the Web had shrunk to four websites where people posted only screenshots from the other three, let's not add a fifth one to that dumpster fire.

@jkb What's the problem with mirroring?
I am quite happy to find some content here, that otherwise I could not find here


@KitKat Cross-posting is fine, automatic mirroring is not because it grabs things out of context and many of them are Twitter-specific.

I was complaining because of a retweet of a picture from a locked Twitter account, no context was provided nor could be found.

As someone pointed out it would be nice if Twitter provided a proper gateway to the Fediverse that would allow actual interaction instead of just getting a copy. It's quite unlikely that this will ever happen, though.
