How to boost (retweet/reshare) posts for Mastodon
Boosting/Resharing others' Mastodon posts
To boost others' posts using Publer, simply follow these steps:
Find the post you want to boost.
Copy the URL of the post.
Paste the URL in the text editor.
This will create a boost of the chosen post. You can view it directly on the Post Preview on the right side.
Keep in mind, you should not add any text in the caption or the spoiler field, as that will convert it into a normal link post.
Specify the language of the Mastodon post (optional) and schedule the boost accordingly.
Note: The Links/URLs will always count as 23 characters, no matter their length.
Boosting/Resharing your own posts using AutoShare
If you want to boost your own posts, you can use Publer's AutoShare feature.
Create your post.
Choose the Mastodon account on the left for which you want to create a post.
Click on the AutoShare icon underneath the post.
Specify on which Mastodon accounts you want the post to be boosted.
You can also add other social accounts of other platforms besides Mastodon, and it will share a link of the post you are creating.
If you wish to add a delay between the post and the retweet, you can activate the Share after a delay option where you can choose between minutes, hours, days or weeks
Click Save and schedule the post.
