ℹ️ Automatic cross-posting to Mastodon and other services

You can automatically cross-post your microblog posts to Medium, Mastodon, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Flickr, Bluesky, Nostr, and Pixelfed.

  • On the web, go to Account → Edit Sources and Cross-posting.
  • In the Cross-posting column, click “Add Mastodon” or one of the other services. You’ll be prompted to authorize your account with that service.

New posts will be cross-posted automatically to the services you choose.

Certain rules govern how your cross-posted content will appear. For example, on Mastodon:

  • Short posts without a title, and less than 500 characters, will be sent to Mastodon unmodified.
  • Longer posts without a title, but longer than 500 characters, will be truncated with a link back to your microblog.
  • Posts with a title, regardless of length, will be sent to Mastodon using the title and a link back to your microblog to read the full post.
  • Up to 4 photos embedded in a post are automatically downloaded and attached to your post. Photos should be larger than 200×200, to avoid accidentally cross-posting small buttons and tracking images that some blog systems include.
  • The first link in a post will be appended as a URL to the end of the tweet.

Similar rules apply for the other services, but with different character length restrictions.

You can continue to reply directly on other services and on Micro.blog. Replies posted directly on Micro.blog aren’t included in your microblog RSS feed, so they won’t be cross-posted.

Twitter cross-posting update: We had to remove Twitter support after Twitter changed their API in 2023. We do still support importing an archive of tweets to your blog.
