Anybody who has mirrored BirdSite accounts to fedi, do you have thoughts on the pros/cons of sourcing posts from the developer API vs an RSS feed from something like Nitter.net or the now dead Twit RSS?

the first thing I would do differently next time, is only mirror accounts that grant permission. Mirrored.social was banned from mastodon.social for not having permission first.

@davewoodx

That's helpful, thanks! I def don't want to have to get permission from each account I want to mirror - but since I'm posting to/reading from my own instances I don't think I should hit that issue.

That might make me lean towards RSS from nitter though so my dev credentials couldn't be revoked

@davewoodx (if it might become an issue on the Twitter side) (Am I allowed to say the T word on fedi?)

@jaredmoody you will hit that issue. That’s what I’m saying. My entire instance was banned, so no one on mastodon.social, not even my account, could follow the mirrored accounts. Pretty much killed the entire point of the mirrored service.

@jaredmoody @davewoodx @ChrisWere using RSS is definitely less hassle. The only reason I went with the Twitter API was because I didn't realize Nitter had an RSS feed. :)
