@gmj (#tsvhqdq) Yup it is! I loved it so much I built this web app and backend for what is essentially a multi-user client with API and we have a team of 5 that also built a Mobile App 🎉 LMK if you’re interest in learning more 😁

(#tsvhqdq) These are indeed some of the nice aspects of the whole Twtxt idea… However bear in mind that folks like you and me are “technically minded” and we are (by the looks) UNIX buffs 😀 That is to say, (as I said) I loved the whole idea so much I wanted to bring it to everyone! Yes there are lots of clients of all kinds of different capabilities. I intend to blog about the non-breaking extensions we made to Twtxt.net to enhance the UX (User eXperience). Remember though that it is still decentralised 😎

(#tsvhqdq) one problme I’m seeing already is that the “micro” part is loosing out. Things are routinely getting longer than 140 characters

@prologic what is the exact syntax neeed for threads to work in the subject, e.g. will (#tsvhqdq) do it? The whole … (#tsvhqdq) thing seems like a bit of overkill. Too many characters.

(#tsvhqdq) Re “External September”, if this were to happen (hopefully not too soon!) this would be awesome, I would celebrate some level of success 😀 That being said, I get the overwhelming problems that can incur. Fortunately as you know Twtxt is designed to be decentralised, so are Twt.social pods like this one (twtxt.net), it is just one of quite a few now (10 to that we know of so far, 1 of which has nothing to do with us).

(#tsvhqdq) Re “Conversations”. Please read my blog post Making Twtxt Better for an explanation of this. Basically we hash each Twt with a Blake2B hash and use that as the “Subject”. The Twt must exist to be replied to form a conversation, you can’t just make up a hash. The nice thing however is that this works across pods too. A conversation that starts on one pod and has participants in another pod, the twts get mirrorred there with the same hashes .

(#tsvhqdq) yes. I read that. Nice post. Brave browser at least has trouble with formatting. The regexp got lost when renederd. Eww (emacs text browser) doees just fine with it :-)

(#tsvhqdq) in the original twtxt your URL is your identity. No need for anyone outside your control to do account managment. One reason I’ll likely be sticking with command line. But, great work

@gmj (#tsvhqdq) Re “Your identity is your Twt URI”, to be honest I’m not 100% convinced of this per se. What if you decide to change where/how you host your twtxt.txt feed? I did! Many others have too. See the last line of my old feed at https://prologic.github.io/twtxt.txt 😀 In any case it really doesn’t matter tbh, since I have done so far and continue to plan to do so, keep backwards compatibility with the Twtxt spec/format and this means any client should work.

@gmj (#tsvhqdq) Oh should have mentioned this before, but Twtxt.net (and other Twt.social pods) also have an API, this means we can do interesting things like for example have a mobile app. We have one for Android in the Play Store which you can find/install here if you’re on an Android device.

@gmj (#tsvhqdq) Btw… You should read my Hacktober Blog Post, if you’re any good with programming and/or Go we could use the help! That post also outlines some interesting things we want to do, for example Git integration so that one could primarily keep their twtxt.txt file in a Git repo somewhere, but still have say a twtxt.net account and use the Web App, API and Mobile apps as well as the command-line when they’re at a terminal with access t their Git repo, etc…
