MicroBlog

WebLog in short-form (MicroContent)


micro.blog is a microblogging and social networking service created by Manton Reece. It was launched on April 24, 2017, after a Kickstarter campaign that reached its funding target within one day.[1][2] Micro.blog is the first large multi-user social media service to support the Webmention and Micropub protocols standardized by the World Wide Web Consortium.[3] The service was built using Jekyll, and users can post using hosted accounts, then use RSS feeds to export their posts, and syndicate them into the network from other websites they run. Users can also import their posts from Twitter and the defunct microblogging service App.net.

Micro.blog Help - Why I created Micro.blog

believe that even these short-form posts, no matter if they seem unimportant and fleeting at the time, still have an important place on the open web. That’s why I created Micro.blog

It’s built on RSS and independent microblogs

Micro.blog encourages publishing at your own domain name, where you can control your own content, but it still integrates posts into a familiar timeline user interface, with centralized replies, favorites, and an open API based on JSON Feed and IndieWeb standards.

2018: About a month ago we added experimental support for Indiepaper to Micro.blog. It’s in the spirit of Instapaper or Pocket, but built on IndieWeb standards.
