Interesting Communities Idea for micro.blog

created Dec 20, 2017

I've been enjoying micro.blog in recent weeks. I like the built-in reply mechanism that exists even for users who use micro.blog for free. My posts appear at micro.blog via the RSS or JSON feeds that exist here at sawv.org. Replies at micro.blog appear in my micro.blog account, and those replies get sent to sawv.org as Webmentions. Pretty cool.

I also like how micro.blog does not display narcissistic stats. I think that's the case. I have not seen any "following" counts. No count for the number of people who I follow, and no count of the number of people who follow me. I suppose that means other users won't know that I follow them, which I like.

Anyway, these posts are the point of my post:
