  1. This project is a *fork* of [the original BirdsiteLIVE from NicolasConstant]( This fork runs in production on [a large BirdsiteLIVE instance]( Changes made in this fork include:
  2. * Rework About page entirely - also disclose unlisted accounts and federation restrictions
  3. * Cache Tweets so that, for example, Announces do not hit rate limits
  4. * Allow replacing and redirecting to in Tweets to other domains (i.e. Nitter instances)
  5. * Verified checkmarks on [verified]( Twitter users
  6. * Proper remote follow form on user pages
  7. * Mark individual Tweets as potentially sensitive
  8. * Define and enforce a maximum follow count limit
  9. * Define and enforce a maximum Tweet fetch age using snowflakes
  10. * (Optional) send quote-RTs as Soapbox-style quote posts
  11. This fork is also available as a Docker image as `pasture/birdsitelive`.
  12. The project's original README is as follows:

  15. ## About
  16. BirdsiteLIVE is an ActivityPub bridge from Twitter, it's mostly a pet project/playground for me to handle ActivityPub concepts. Feel free to deploy your own instance (especially if you plan to follow a lot of users) since it use a proper Twitter API key and therefore will have limited calls ceiling (it won't scale, and it's by design).
  17. ## State of development
  18. The code is pretty messy and far from a good state, since it's a playground for me the aim was to understand some AP concepts, not provide a good state-of-the-art codebase. But I might refactor it to make it cleaner.
  19. ## Official instance
  20. You can find an official (and temporary) instance here: []( This instance can disapear at any time, if you want a long term instance you should install your own or use another one.
  21. ## Installation
  22. I'm providing a [docker build]( To install it on your own server, please follow [those instructions]( More [options]( are also available.
  23. Also a [CLI]( is available for adminitrative tasks.
