This is going to be the most frequent of frequently asked questions. If Micro.blog supports the fediverse, why doesn’t the new Tapbots app Ivory work with Micro.blog? ActivityPub is a mostly server-to-server API that both Micro.blog and Mastodon support. This allows people on Mastodon to follow people on Micro.blog. When you post to your blog, the post is sent out to Mastodon folks, and they can reply and join conversations on Micro.

“As Mastodon becomes more popular, it’s important that Micro.blog stays true to its blogging roots and unique take on social media, rather than shifting to be a Twitter or Mastodon clone. We don’t need a monoculture with all apps looking exactly the same.”

p2p protocol (e.g. ssbc) is the future, I think.

Is micro.blog open source?

Disappointing. It’s too bad there’s not a standard API that clients could use to communicate with servers.

EDIT: That was a sarcastic response. ActivityPub has a Client-to-Server (C2S) API that would solve this problem if anybody would ever implement it.

IIRC ActivityPub has a client-server API too, but hardly anyone implements it.
