@jaywink I guess I would ask @Gargron that, but I think I recall him being on record as saying he would prefer people not crosspost with bird shite. As to the second question: Mastondon is federated, so it can be a part of other federated universes... just not capitalist walled gardens like twitter.
@rickscully Gargron makes the software but he doesn't get to say how it is used ;)
I don't personally see any reason why the federated web and the capitalistic web cannot live together. They will have to since none can kill the other.
It's a mark of both laziness and arrogance to pepper the TL daily with crossposts and to never actually interact with anyone who is a regular resident here. I make exceptions for the people who crosspost and *do* interact. Or for valuable news services like IGD. But they're in the minority anyway.
I have yet to see that on either instance I use. People may become ecstatic over a new project they're launching, or an old project they're polishing... and share or retoot something a couple of times in one day. (Esp. if they're looking for assistance or feedback.) But that's not spamming. It's also not designed to try and drive traffic back from the Fediverse to Twitter.
