Using the Micro.blog macOS app in full screen, splitting a space with Tweetbot in multi-column mode, is a perfect way to enjoy the IndieWeb :)

 

Enjoying the new macOS client for Micro.blog. Good job, @manton! Excellent start. My biggest request across the board is the ability to provide `syndicate-to` targets for my website, which supports Micropub.

 

Made a quick change to my site to directly ping Micro.blog on updates. Bypasses my need for WebSub, which seems sort of flaky at the moment.

 

The more I read my Micro.blog timeline, the more I think @manton should add oEmbed and URL unfurling. Lots of people posting links, and the reading experience would be improved. Putting the onus on the client software isn’t going to work, IMO.

 

Changed up my Micro.blog feed to include more types of content, including bookmarks, likes, posts, checkins, recipes, and watch notifications. Looking good so far! πŸŽ‰

 

I'm starting to think that the biggest way to encourage engagement on Micro.blog would be to add `repost-of` support. On Twitter, I frequently discover new users/content to follow by seeing what is amplified by my current timeline. /cc @manton

 

@vmbrasseur Time to join Micro.blog! It supports Markdown πŸ˜€ Want an invite code?

 

Anyone want an invitation to Micro.blog? Ht me up!

 

My grill is now updating its own site via , posting to Twitter and Micro.blog.

 

Micro.blog is getting a lot of love in @t's keynote at for launching native.

 

Also pondering how to best present @-mentions across the IndieWeb and how they should be represented in Micro.blog. Curious to hear your thoughts, @Manton. Thinking my extensions to JSON Feed may be useful, here...

 

Hey, Micro.blog's latest iOS app seems to be able to publish to my website via Micropub! Nicely done, @manton.

 

Looks like I spoke too soon. Micro.blog handles photo posts with titles now, but seems to not embed if you include any content in the body, which Known let's me do.

 

Awesome! Micro.blog now properly embeds photo posts on my timeline! Micropub still doesn't work yet from the iOS app to Known, though. Still, progress!

 

Well put, Colin. A platform like Micro.blog has a great deal of potential to advance the adoption of IndieWeb building blocks like Micropub, IndieAuth, Webmention, and mf2, even if the users of Micro.blog don't know or understand any of the underlying foundations. Why? User experience! Micro.blog is simply leveraging IndieWeb technology and standards to build a platform that makes users happy.

While Micro.blog is a great step forward for the IndieWeb, I still believe that the holy grail is getting native support for IndieWeb deep within WordPress core, including broad support from themes. WordPress runs over 28% of all websites, and IndieWeb support in core could be the tipping point for broad adoption.

 

Thrilled to see the rollout of Micro.blog! Three cheers for the .
