@strypey I've seen posts in GNU social timelines, clicked the author, and instead of a mastodon or gnu social profile it's a diaspora or friendica page. And for whatever reason, I can't follow them. Crossposting doesn't even seem to be required.. it seems to be automaticly integrated.
@resist1984 AFAIK Friendica automatically connects over #OStatus, #Diaspora, and #ActivityPub protocols. If someone on GNU social is following a Friendica user, you might see posts from apps using any of those in their timeline. What I'm asking though, is about Friendica crossposting *outside* the fediverse. To Titter etc.
@strypey I suppose you need a twtr acct for that?
I've been driven off twtr by an ultimatum demanding I supply a phone#. I'm happy to be off twtr for the most part but there are times I need to reach an organization there & I'm blocked (b/c twtr isn't getting a phone# from me).
> I suppose you need a twtr acct for that?
Yes. I haven't given Titter a phone # and AFAIK my account is still working. Maybe it helps that my avatar is my face, and it is here, and it's the same pic I use pretty much everywhere else.
