In-reply-to » Just noticed that Firefox now downloads feeds (Atom, RSS), which is a little less than helpful. 🙄

@movq@uninformativ.de yeah, I agree on the Feed icon and discoverability in general, following the trend that most web 2.0 services stopped supporting RSS (in 2010 I think?). Again, it’s like they don’t want the common user to know that exists, perhaps for not promoting browsing the web but an alternative way to consume content (hiding most ads in the process)

And then Firefox includes Pocket, which is the first thing I disable 🙃

In-reply-to » Guys, I have a bad news, I went through the twtxt-osphere : - I found 1289 twtxt account - among those 721 are accessible ( 712 http / 9 gemini / 0 gopher) - but only 111 account are still active in 2022 :S (107 http / 4 gemini / 0 gopher).

@tkanos I’ve seen much more than 9 Gemini accesible twtxt files, perhaps the capsules are down? 🤔

Also, what’s the difference between found and accessible? Being linked in any page counts as found and then the link being broken makes it non accesible?

@tkanos interesting, kudos for the hard work.

Saying something obvious here, I think twtxt as a plain text format is so easy to create but not so easy to consume and extremely hard to use as a conversations tool.

It’s missing the famous ‘network effect’ to hook into real conversations. So it could transform into a communication protocol, rather than a timed text format.

@prologic@twtxt.net if influence © is motivating to twt more often, I guess it’s a good influence 😛

In-reply-to » Just noticed that Firefox now downloads feeds (Atom, RSS), which is a little less than helpful. 🙄

personally, I haven’t used Feeds like I used to do 10+ ago. I don’t care about following blogs anymore, but following people and topics (on Twitter, Twtxt, etc) and curated content (newsletters, a bit of pinterest…), I don’t read news anymore. I listed to a lot of podcast but the directories get the Feed URL for me.

Perhaps that’s a bad habit remaining from social media usage. Changing how I consume/get periodic content. Makes me think 🤔

@movq@uninformativ.de interesting point. Perhaps you’ve seen the official take title Firefox removes core product support for RSS/Atom feeds | Use Tables!

“These features have long had outsized maintenance and security costs relative to their usage”, which amounted to 0.01 percent of sessions.

Which could be innacurate since most power users disable telemetry. Anyway, for some reason, most mainstream browsers avoid supporting Feeds, and I think it’s a matter of advertising and trends. We could use a plugin/extension tho.

@prologic@twtxt.net a MAU is every person using Yarn.social/twtxt.net at least once in the last 30 days ? BTW, that dashboard looks cool,

Congratulations, may those 100 MAUs be the first of many more 🥳🎉

In-reply-to » @tkanos a quick question, I'm using twet (thanks for the recommendation), how do the clients announce between them that you have replied to a previous twt?

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci Didn’t know about WebSub, it’s really cool everything around the simple .txt file to make it work a a social protocol.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge 😀

In-reply-to » @tkanos a quick question, I'm using twet (thanks for the recommendation), how do the clients announce between them that you have replied to a previous twt?

@prologic If I remember correctly, we were discussing a few months ago options like Webmention, I have never used it, although sounds better in my mind than parsing the access_log.

That search engine you mention or a global Database of Twt hashes could help. I remember that Twitter users had an external search platform, acquired later by Twitter: https://techcrunch.com/2008/07/15/confirmed-twitter-acquires-summize-search-engine/

As @tkanos said, a comment in the txt file like: Notify me on this email, or automatically register your feed in this URL as Antenna does, would be a nice addition. I assume that if you are replying you are interested in making a dual connection, so they can answer you back. Just thinking out loud.

In-reply-to » Please don't test it for now BUT just to announce that the version 0.1.0 alpha (not yet tested) of my future twtxt client twx has been pushed.

@tkanos@twtxt.net My question goes more in if someone replies to me, and I don’t follow them, how can I know they is trying to do it?

I guess they need to contact me somehow to request a follow, right?

You have to follow the other person and the clients look for replies for each of your twts?

In-reply-to » @~eaplmx 👆 this is amazing! Thanks to the designer of this extension: https://dev.twtxt.net/doc/twthashextension.html

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Thank you! I didn’t remember that section :o

Looking at those options, it seems that jenny requires mutt (I don’t use it) and perhaps won’t be compatible with Windows (I have WSL, so it’s not a problem), I can’t find how to install twet, and twtr looks better but says it’s deprecated 🙃

@~eaplmx@eapl.mx 👆 this is amazing! Thanks to the designer of this extension: https://dev.twtxt.net/doc/twthashextension.html

BTW I’m using the Python twtxt CLI which doesn’t support the twthash, I’ve seen some ports to Go, but I wasn’t able to make them work, mainly due to my lack of knowledge in Golang. Any suggestions for a better client?

@prologic@twtxt.net Ruby or Python, pick your posion. Indeed it could be Go or Nim =P

I don’t dislike PHP, it’s only that I haven’t used it for years, maybe since the jump from PHP 5 to 7? I’ve heard good things about PHP 8.

@darch@neotxt.dk hey! I’ve seen your picoblog and pixelblog before, and I got to say it is just what I was looking for (sadly it’s in PHP =P, I haven’t touched it in ages)

Thanks for sharing!

@darch@neotxt.dk & @prologic@twtxt.net I don’t know how to answer from the .txt file, so I’ll reply here 😅

I was thinking more of having a simple script to have a human-friendly view, and to practice Ruby. Something like: https://github.com/my5t3ry/twi

That said, I didn’t know (or recall) about the IndieWeb, I’ll take a look to it, thanks!
