I just updated the twitter category on this blog to be called posse as it is syndicated to twitter & mastodon. I also disabled the twitter cross posting from micro.blog. Micro.blog does a lovely job of cross posting images along with alt tags to mastodon.
A quick test to see if ticking the syndicate to mastadon via the Syndication Links plugin works. Like a lot of others I am poking around mastadon again. I think my preference is still POSSE from my own site for social. I didn’t like the way twitter has become the official comms for schools & government before last week.
Got a web site?
Want to publish your posts to social networks?
Want to see comments and likes on your site?
Bridgy is for you.
Bridgy lets you post to social networks – and comment, like, reshare, and
more – from your own web site. It also pulls other people’s comments, likes, and
reshares of your posts back to your site. In
IndieWeb lingo, Bridgy lets you
the silos easily and
backfeed the responses
out this example, or see the docs for more details.
This looks like a really exciting development in social media. Recently most of the commentary on blog posts has moved to twitter, g+ or facebook. This looks like it could link that up and push out posts and then pull comments made on other sites back to your blog.
