There are a couple of live streamers who announce upcoming streams on Twitter. Since I don't have a Twitter account, I typically miss the streams (and just watch the recordings).
Is there a non-obnoxious request I could make for an alternate announcement method?
"Could you also create and use a Fediverse account" feels like a bit too much of an ask, but I'm not sure what to ask for instead. RSS? Email?
Or nothing, and just build a Twitter bot at some point?
Hmm? It wasn't a multiple-choice question :)
Weird, that isn't what I wrote. I asked if the streaming Services don't provide notifications.
@codesections You could ask them to set up a Twitter/Fedi bridge. That way, it'd be under their credentials, so Twitter's less likely to ban it.
And then they'd have an easy out when Twitter gets too bad for them.
@codesections Well, you can't officially get a Twitter->RSS feed anymore. But you can load the user's page with a bot that says it's a browser and scrape it.
@codesections you could try following their handle @activitypub.actor or @birdsite.monster if your instance doesn't block these instances.
