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).

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

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