Micro.blog is adding ActivityPub federation support and cross-posting to Mastodon https://www.manton.org/2018/11/07/microblog-mastodon.html
@Gargron woah this is huge news!
@Gargron That is encouraging? That's s till a closed/hosted platform though, right? Still, even if more closed platforms start implementing a full ActivityPub (not broken XMPP Facebook/Google garbage) it can lead to a more decentralized and more diverse Internet.
@Gargron This is very interesting. Sometimes I have a longer post that exceeds Mastodon.sdf's char limit (which is fine as it's long) so I don't want/need another instance with a longer limit.
I thought I might use Diaspora for this and post a link on MAstodon but something that did this automatically, federated with ther microblogs and processes 'comments' (well Mastodon replies - like @rpcutts has set up on this blog)...
...and, of course, this microblog post is an example as it's now straddling two entries.
#2 - Blogging to my own blog is a possibility but hey, that's a lot of work. YAML front matter, subject, words, publish 🙂
