Testing something… @@example.com
For people using clients other than yarnd, does that appear as a valid mention? It’s valid according to the spec but I’ve never seen it in use anywhere.
Mentions are embedded within the text in either
@<source.url>format and should be expanded by the client, when rendering the tweets.
@firstname.lastname@example.org, do you have a dump of all the twtxt feeds from doing we-are-twtxt? If so, could you please upload a tarball somewhere or send me a magnet link? I want to grep it for this crazy mention syntax.
@email@example.com If that was my URL, it would show up as “someone mentioned me”, yes. (It isn’t mine, though, so there’s not a lot that my client does to it.)
@firstname.lastname@example.org My client parses the mention and just shows the URL. Since I don’t follow that feed, it is rendered white on red just like any other feed I don’t follow. My markdown support is very limited, inline code is unknown to tt, so the mentions put in code blocks are just treated as regular mentions. And then you can see, that you mentioned me incorrectly. :-P
Outside of this thread, this comment syntax has been used exactly twice when searching every known, currently accessible twtxt feed on the Web.
