@manton, I’m not sure if anyone would have thought to ask or do such a thing, but does micro.blog provide users any feeds (RSS, JSON, etc.) of the sites the’re subscribed to for reading in a reader that isn’t necessarily micro.blog’s primary interface?

I ask because I’m curious about the ease of maintaining contacts if one wanted a different reader experience, were to leave micro.blog, or simply wanted to transfer from following 100s within micro.blog to follow them using other interfaces?

Any thoughts perhaps of providing an exportable OPML file for making functionality like this easier? Or for taking an OPML file and putting it into a feed reader that supports subscribing to OPML files?

  1. @c This has come up a few times before, and he’s said OPML is on his radar (have to be able to filter out feeds that expose private info/tokens and such). You can also get your Timeline as a RSS/JSON feed, which isn’t the same as you’re asking but is an intermediate option available now…

  2. @c When longer replies get truncated, the formatting and links are lost. (As for OPML, I need a way to trim out potentially private feeds first. It’s rare but sometimes people add feeds not expecting them to be public.)
