Bookmarked Webmention and Twitter by Manton ReeceManton Reece (manton.org)
After the Webmention session last weekend, I was inspired to revisit a quirk of Micro.blog’s Webmention implementation. Bridgy is an IndieWeb-friendly service commonly used to forward tweet replies via Webmention. If you were using Bridgy to connect your blog to Twitter, Micro.blog had been essent...

Help me discover more awesome indie webmasters! @ me if you or your favorite blog supports webmentions!

Mine does. I also keep a list of people who have IndieWeb sites and most (though not all) will support Webmentions: https://boffosocko.com/about/following/

Most under the IndieWeb and some under the IndieWeb for Education and Blogger headings will support webmentions.

You can find others by browsing through Brid.gy users, the vast majority of whom will support it as will users of Micro.blog. Another good source of discovery is the IndieWeb webring: https://🕸💍.ws.

If you’d like, you can add a Webmention button to your site to visually indicate that you support it.

Update: Also, if you want to meet some “in person”, I’d welcome you to join one of our virtual meetups coming up: https://events.indieweb.org/

Sometimes Brid.gy can miss tweets. Here I suspect it’s because of the t.co wrapping as well as searching the entirety of the stream for your URL since it wasn’t a direct reply to your original tweet. Ryan Barrett may have more info.

In this case, I was able to re-force it to send by putting the permalink for the missing tweet into the Resend for Post field at https://brid.gy/twitter/TheGreenGreek. Hopefully it shows up for you on rebuild.

Based on your request tweet, I thought you had wanted your original Tweet to show up in your comment thread, which might be useful in some cases. And perhaps you do want that too, though to my knowledge Brid.gy doesn’t do that. I have a set up on my site that sends refbacks which then parse and display as native comments much the same way webmentions do. Generally this drives me nuts, and I always hide these refbacks from syndicated copies of my content as they look like duplicates.

We’ve launched a Bridgy browser extension! If you use Bridgy for Instagram backfeed, you’ll need to install it (Firefox, Chrome). Please try it out and let us know what you think! Instagram and Facebook have been thorns in B...

My poor little website passed 23,000 comments/replies/reactions yesterday. This is in tremendous part due to webmentions and the ability to collect the conversation about my content across social spaces.

I’m wondering when comments will pass the number of posts (currently 27,648)?

Brid.gy can handle that for you.

I need to go back and revise it a bit, but I built a bit of UI for doing just this with Webmention: https://boffosocko.com/2017/12/24/adding-simple-twitter-response-buttons-to-wordpress-posts/

The other piece requires being able to thread conversations. Details for that here: https://boffosocko.com/2018/07/02/threaded-conversations-between-wordpress-and-twitter/

Thirteen: Backfeeding ideas with Brid.gy

Let’s say I syndicate a thought to Twitter. I can use Bri.gy to backfeed ideas and interactions with my Tweet back to my original in my digital notebook (where it’s most useful).  This helps outside ideas filter into and interact with my own ideas.

You knew ideas can have sex, right?!!

Articles on Quill don’t seem to have the ability to syndicate to twitter and mastodo, so I might end up using micropublish. Bit frustrating to figure this all out, but also kind of fun to be honest.
If you use the Syndication Links plugin and configure it, Quill should be able to find your Twitter and Mastodon “endpoints” on your site and provide you with buttons to syndicate to them. 

It looks like your theme has an extra u-photo on it that’s causing that avatar image to be sent to Twitter by the way. The way the microformats are set up is also causing them (Syndication Links) to display too, but it’s fixable with some tinkering. You might try IndieWeb chat to see if someone can help you troubleshoot it.

Read Getting so-so-social with and the by Will Stedden (bonkerfield)
As a first step, I started by building an aggregator of all my blog and social activity to my "viewfoil". The goal is to have anybody on any social media platform be able to get a good sense of who I am (and that I am indeed a real person and not a bot/Russian troll). I now have most of my personal sources in the stream, and I've made it filterable by source. Letting strangers see everything I do online is a start, but it's not very social if my site only contains content from me. I want my site to be open to input from others.
