Account Types

Human

This is the only account type that is meant for human accounts! Cross-posting is acceptable, but it may be more appropriate to use a feed, if it has no intention to interact.

  • Posts from these accounts show up in all public post streams
  • Users cannot create the same post twice in a row within a minute

Feed

Designed not to interact, but to simply feed content from another source.

  • Feed posts only show up in their followers' personal streams
  • Like Human account posts, they are subject to duplicate post detection
  • Feed accounts cannot follow or mute other accounts, and cannot create reposts
  • Changing to this account type will unfollow everyone

Bot

Can be interactive, but is automated.

  • Bot accounts can make duplicate posts
  • Their posts only show up in followers' personal streams
  • They can only follow accounts that are following them
