Effective February 10, 2022, my signal boosting guideline is simple and as follows:
UNLESS WE HAVE AN EXISTING RELATIONSHIP, DO NOT EVER ASK ME TO SIGNAL BOOST, RETWEET OR SHARE ANYTHING.
Far too often, the very first interaction I have with a person is when they pop up and ask for me to amplify their funding request. But I’m not lending my audience and my reputation to strangers.
The hashtags I add to the requests I do choose to boost are available to everyone: #MaterialSupport #HousingCrowdFund #EmergencyCrowdFund #DisabilityCrowdFund #TransCrowdFund — use them, as applicable, to further the reach of a funding request. But don’t ask me.
