For those that might be a little bit lost regarding my twtxt presence:

  • I host my own twtxt feed here so I can remain independent of 3rd party providers, and “owner of my own feed”. However;
  • Currently my feed is being generated and managed at twtxt.net, which allows me, amongst other things, to use goryon, a nice mobile app, to manage my feed (even if twtxt.net’s web interface works pretty well on mobile);
  • On a geeky sidenote, I haven’t still set aside the idea of running my own single-user yarn pod instead of relying on twtxt.net, but I didn’t want to postpone this movement any longer, now that there’s a new twitter exodus;
  • For historic purposes, you can still find my old twtxts on the old feed, now rotated into a new address;
  • Finally, there’s still a twtxt feed of my tweets.

Hi @prologic@twtxt.net, question regarding responsible use of twtxt.net’s services. How much is “too intensive” an use of its endpoints? For eg, an “every minute” fetch of a twt feed is considered OK? (I honestly have no idea about the default frequency of communication between pods and all that…)

In-reply-to » I'm not the only twtxt'er that has an bashblog blog... How cool would it be to be able to integrate twtxt comments in it, in replacement to the current twitter comments implementations? With the way threads work in yarn instances, twtxt could even provide way more than just a replacement to twitter...

@movq@www.uninformativ.de I have thought of different approaches, each have strengths and weaknesses. Mostly, I’d like to know what others think :-) In any case, I suppose I’d like to “extend” the hashtag generation API, so each blog post can have its own thread hash tag (like twts do). Then, “listing” the comments could be via querying a registry, and the “leave a comment” link could link to https://preconfigured-yarn.pod/?newtwt=@blogowner%20(#hashtag) or whatever link that would open that pod ready to create that new post if you’re logged in. Bonus points if you can configure more than one pod and it displays a dropdown; more bonus if we decide to implement twt:// uris letting twt clients listen to those (including a browser plug-in letting you say ‘open twt:// uris on https://my.pod’).

Yes, I might be overengineering.

@slashdot@feeds.twtxt.net @prologic@twtxt.net There’s a lot in #DSA to unpack, EDRI is a good resource about it: https://edri.org/our-work/eu-negotiators-approve-good-dsa-but-more-work-is-needed-to-build-a-better-internet/

In-reply-to » 👋 Q&A: Let's discuss the removal of Editing and Deleting your last Twt. This is something @fastidious has raised to me on IRC and something I find quite a valid approach to this. Over time I believe the utility and value of "Editing" and "Deleting" one's last Twt isn't as valuable as we'd like and increased complexity and introduces all kinds of side-effects that are hard to manage correctly. I vote for the removal of this feature from yarnd, the mobile app nor API support this anyway...

@prologic@twtxt.net So, there is an API! This is offtopic for the thread (sorry) but can you link me to its documentation? I’m thinking about creating a single-user barebones “pod”, compatible with the mobile app but that manages a single twtxt file.
