README.md

expandurl-mastodon is a Mastodon bot that expands shortened URLs.

If you want the bot to expand an URL, reply to the post with the URL in it and mention the bot account (@expandurl@botsin.space for example).

Example screenshot

This bot uses the same visibility as you, but posts unlisted instead of public. It retains the sensitive flag and spoiler warnings.

Some tracking parameters, like those beginning with utm_ are stripped. It also tries to rewrite AMP URLs to point at the real webpages.

Please report any bugs via the issue tracker on schlomp.space or to @tastytea@soc.ialis.me.
