Mirrors are the curation tool of the Lens Protocol. They are the protocol's equivalent to reposting or re-amplifying content. Mirrors are treated the same as publications with a few additional checks and a few more minor features.

Since mirrors reference other publications, they are subject to the conditions of the original publication's Reference Module. If a publication has a reference module that limits mirrors only to accounts that follow the original poster, and the mirroring account does not hold a Follow NFT, the transaction to mirror will fail.

Since mirrors only repost existing content, they do not have a ContentURI field and therefore cannot be collected and do not have a Collect Module of their own. Mirrors can have their own reference module, which can define what accounts will be able to mirror or comment on the mirror.
