marcthiele.com supports receiving Webmentions, including backfeeding Twitter responses, probably via brid.gy.

Here are a couple "comments" shown on that web post page.

FuckPlatforms

That was posted to Twitter, a platform silo. The person, however, does maintain a personal website with his last post made in April.

Fuck Medium. Long live individual, real blogs.

That great response was also made at Twitter, which, for the uninitiated, is not an individual, "real" blog. According to that person's Twitter profile:

I left Twitter—only doing crossposts from Mastodon now. Please find me at mastodon.social/@thomasfuchs

That's an improvement.
