@kev Looks like a very useful tool, though I use nitter's rss feeds when I want to follow someone from Twitter
@garritfra seems like there is a "follower request" going out. for every twitter account I tried to follow. Maybe it needs to approve manually? Not sure.
@nodq it should work out of the box. It could be that the display didn't measure the current usage yet. I'll see tomorrow.😅
@garritfra @benjaminpaikjones @nodq I went and followed like 50 accounts I copied over from my old Twitter account. I haven't seen a bridged Tweet from this instance yet. Maybe I'm part of the problem, but I didn't see any rules. Just being transparent.
If it's a capacity problem, perhaps I could host my own private bridge tool I suppose.
@greypilgrim @garritfra @benjaminpaikjones The account we try to follow do not get "accepted" somehow by the instance. Could be a wrong setting or whatever, or the server is at its limits already, so you have to wait for it.
I did try the instance of the dev of birdsite. This one works so far. But I would be happy to use the other one if possible, I think its not good of everybody uses one instance only.
I'm grateful to birdsite, though. It enables me to follow important feeds that aren't available anywhere else (like the public schools in the area. gah) I wish there could be some interaction in the other direction to let people know that Fediverse exists.
