Thanks to @Thib support for #XMPP URIs got merged into mastodon a few days ago. This should make linking to external discussion channels and moving a conversation to a E2E encrypted chat a bit easier on the fediverse:

@rra @Thib That's great but can you also add support for Matrix URLs,please?It's very confusing that the @username:domain.tld format does always parse the leading @username as a Mastodon user 😕

@nipos @rra now, if I understand what you're asking correctly, those aren't URIs and you're asking for very custom logic to be added to Mastodon

@Thib @rra You're right.I thought you added a support to parse,then my request would be quite similar.But if a username would at least need to have a space before and after it,we could prevent unintended mentioning Mastodon users when posting a Matrix address.

@nipos @rra requiring a space before and after would break things like mentioning with a coma immediately instead, which I think is quite frequent. Having a colon right after a handle might be less common, but I think it's common too.

In the end, I think those two handle formats are in the end too close to do anything meaningful with it :/
