In-reply-to > So... it turns out that trying to improve rss2twtxt to add an image and article "excerpt" to our RSS/Atom Feed aggregation service at is quite hard to get right. There's jst no consistency in what folks put into the Content or Description of their RSS/Atom feeds in the first place 😢 Worse yet, some folks (e.g: ListVerse) put basically what I consider "garbage" at the bottom like "This post was first seen blah blah blah" which provides no value.

@prologic I heard that “This post was last seen” is a SEO thing. Basically the website is telling Google: “don’t penalize me on the ranks because I am telling you I didn’t copy this post I am just republishing it and linking to the original”. I bet they even have a rel= specifically for that.
