How does cross-posting work for Mastodon? I have a mstdn.ca account and appreciate that some of our COVID scientists went over there. But to be honest I don't visit there often and would like to cross-post from here.

I don't think Mastodon supports cross-post from that site to Spoutible or any others the way we can from here to there.

I too have found a lot of folks in InfoSec/Cyber and intelligence over there, who left Twitter but struggle to use the platform as often as I should to catch their details.

The letter sent out by Christopher Bouzy says that the cross-posting to Blue Sky and Mastodon. "Spoutible is soaring to new heights with our latest integration of Mastodon for seamless cross-platform posting." I take this to mean that we spout here then it automatically goes on our Mastodon account.

Here's a screen cap to show where you'd setup your cross-platform settings for Mastodon and BlueSky. First, start a new spout and then click on the cloud icon with the connectors on it.

You're the bestest! Thanks for this screenshot. It all makes sense now. I'm going to see if Mr. Bouzy will try to add mstdn.ca for us Canadians.

Me too. I'm a visual learner and diagrams and images help me best. Also, I tend to focus more when listening to someone speak rather than reading it myself (ie audio books). I use the "read out loud" setting for PDF review and I know my poor office neighbors deserve prizes for tolerating me 😂

Lol. Who knows. I definitely don't use Bluesky. I wasn't cool enough to get an invite or whatever passkey access it was to start an account there.

Upon authentication, I'm sure it will be seamless. The Mastodon server I use is not currently supported by Spoutible yet but I expect things will change soon. Given the complexity of Mastodon, i cant imagine its a quick and dirty thing to support just yet.
