#ActivityPub support is live! You can now follow *Public* Write.as blogs from Mastodon, such as our @blog

It's limited to Public blogs right now (a paid feature) so we can slowly roll this out and plug holes as needed -- once I'm confident things are stable in the next few days, it'll be available to everyone for free.

You can read a bit more about the update, and I'd love to hear any feedback / ideas / bugs here! discuss.write.as/t/activitypub

#ActivityPub support is now available to everyone! 🎉 🎊 :fediverse:

Write.as blogs don't federate by default, so to enable it you can either sign up with our new page: write.as/new/blog/federated, or if you're already on Write.as, go to your blog's Customize page and click "Enable federation"

Note this also includes support for custom domains. So if your domain is hosted with us, you can now choose your handle when you enable federation and your blog will be accessible in the fediverse!

@write_as Question -- does updating an article on write.as also send an Update activity to the outbox? I changed the slug on a post and I need to know whether to blame y'all or Mastodon for not updating the URL here. ;)

@trwnh Ah, definitely our fault -- we're not sending that activity yet (more info: discuss.write.as/t/activitypub). I'll get it in there next.

@trwnh Hey, Update activities are now being sent out, but it sounds like Mastodon doesn't do anything with them unfortunately. Still, it should work on any other platform that accepts them.

@write_as Good to know -- I'll submit the issue for that!
