The start of a crossposted quote-tweet can get a bit tangled and blurry because it's all put on the same line:

I usually delete and repost to add some carriage returns, so I can see what's going on:

I think this would be my ideal for most quote-tweet crossposting purposes:

Enthusiastic commentary!

RT @username@twitter.com
Original quote-tweeted tweet text. :O

I'm posting this just in case other people feel the same way as me, but I'm assuming that it's just me who struggles with this, so if this gets closed because I'm the only one then that is 100% okay! :) The current way does save space so there are pros to each way.

I remember some suggestions about readability on this one already, and I guess adding the carriage returns would help with ascii-based stuff (either the stars art or stuff like the emoji tetra), I'm in for this one :)

Add newlines in quotes and RTs for clarity
This changes the format for quotes and retweets when crossposted to
Mastodon, adding an empty line between the twitter username of the
author of the original tweet and the content. And in the case of quotes,
adding an empty line between the text of the quote and the name of the
original tweet author.
Fixes #147
