Also, in settings, you can ask it to remove your trigger:

Update again: I re-selected URL as advised, and it’s posting URLs now! However, I’ve learned that the trigger-removing tool doesn’t work for some reason, and gifs uploaded to Mastodon are posted as still images on Twitter.

Update again: There is another limitation that’s bugging me — it removes carriage returns somewhere between Mastodon and Twitter.

Update again: It also can’t handle multiple attached images. It just picks one and posts it!
