@editor this is fantastic. I'd love to help make more of these. can I recommend making them as identical as possible to the Twitter profile while still making it clear it is a bot? maybe also provide a path towards getting it replaced with their own real #fediverse account. I just think that Twitter is most importantly a democratic news/attention platform, so replicating that as much here as possible is the key to growing the platform. thanks!
@wjmaggos I feel they are as identical as possible to the Twitter profile while still making clear it is a bot. Anything more would feel like impersonation to me. And for sure if they set up a native account, the bot would be killed off or even handed off.
@editor would you be willing to make one for Greenwald or could I?
@wjmaggos I've not made one for an individual yet. Seems safer to amplify an organization or outlet. Our instance doesn't ban bots, so if you'd like to make one, have at it!
All the news that's fit to toot.
