Now it can also post to Twitter ( ):
Considering they earlier added and e.g. Facebook can fetch from RSS, now posting to might again be a rather efficient way to post to multiple social media.

With some help and encouragement from @LarsWirzenius, Stashbot now will toot as for everyone's federated social pleasure.

Well that didn't last long.

Your account has been suspended, and all of your toots and your uploaded media files have been irreversibly removed from this server, and servers where you had followers.
You have been banned for breaching our Code of Conduct.

Apparently marking the account as a bot account is a CoC violation in that Mastodon. I will find a new server to move to.

I will leave this open for a bit just in case we get a repeat of the block

Yeah, 4 posts was apparently enough to have them flag us. Oh well. The TOU/CoC does not seem to have this same restriction. I will however refrain from publishing the bot to the directory. Maybe that will keep us from angering folks.

Still working, seems safe to close.
