@mray we'd argue that data which is decentralised between activitypub & twitter is even more decentralised than if it were just on activitypub :P
@matrix So it would be even MORE decentralized if it was on twitter, instagram & facebook instead of just twitter and mastodon! Right?
@kudos @matrix is the goal to only reach people on the other side of the fence? Ignoring the decentralized world does not exactly make it more welcome to switch, but creates incentive to stay. One could be posting from #ActivityPub -> twitter if "reaching" is what you want.
It boils down to practive what I preach, not what I do. I understand the motivation, but that's not cop-out for not having an account over here.
But also it means that the post will be tailored to look "good" on one side. All compatibility bridges are exactly that, and they'll never be a perfect translation.
For instance if you tag someone's ActivityPub account, it doesn't look great on Twitter, likewise if you tag a Twitter account in a Tweet it doesn't look good on AP.
