But I am here, and I am reading.

It has been discovered that Tootdon silently forwards copies of posts you interact as well as the auth token to your account to its to own servers.


Consider replacing it with an open-source Masto app like Mastalab or SubwayTooter.

Make sure you also revoke Tootdon from your Authorized Apps in Preferences.

If your feed mostly contains Crossposted RTs from Twitter, I will mute you, which means I'll probably never interact with you.

I get that you probably don't care, and that's fine, but just consider that you're bringing a lot of noise over when you connect yourself with those kind of cross-posters. Maybe opt out of RT cross-posts if you can.
