Oh Facebook! That algorithm needs a lot more work…
Finally got round to allowing my reposts to have a comment/content to support Twitter’s new(ish) retweet-with-comment functionality.
Micropublish also had a bump to show the content field when posting.
Facebook has put everyone else on notice. Your content better load fast or you’re screwed.
While I’m not overly keen on the prospect of content moving within Facebook’s walled garden, if it means existing news sites have to up their game and improve their dog-slow, bloated, marketing-led, advert-riddled mobile web experiences then we all benefit.
“The Waterloo Bridge Handicap”
https://youtu.be/xqMMRvQnzsY?t=10m30s (race commentary from 10m30s)
Love this clip of Leonard Rossiter ‘racing’ other commuters which was played on the screen at last night’s Belle and Sebastian gig. The race follows the same route I take when working in our London office. I also always end up pretend-racing others walking across the bridge up to the Strand. I wonder if they’re also in on it?
Superb Belle and Sebastian gig tonight. A few oldies: highlight was audience on stage to Boy With The Arab Strap:
In September 2006 I posted one of the first ever tweets about Arsenal Football Club, lamenting my team’s fondness for always trying to walk it in after watching a frustrating draw with Middlesborough at The Emirates.
Every now and again someone rediscovers it and I get a barrage of retweets and replies, some polite, others from goading fans of other teams seeing the activity and incorrectly assuming I’m talking about the current team.
So reluctantly I’ve deleted the tweet and my phone is silent once more.
Ending today with “Man Don’t Give A Fuck” at superb @superfurry gig seems appropriate
I seem to have lost all my saved searches in @tweetbot and the Twitter web app. I only had a few and can recreate but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
New gadget installed today, just in time for summer #nest
Twitter adds RT-with-quote functionality via progressive enhancement: it uses a link to the original tweet. https://twitter.com/twitter/status/585225218093932544
(Well, that’s the theory. Let’s see if this actually works when syndicated to Twitter).
So I now have a new feature to add here: take tweet URLs and expand them below my own note. Even better, make this indieweb-friendly and take a summary when doing a “quote-with-repost” of someone’s indieweb post.
This week, while in Boston, I finally attended my first #indiewebcamp – two days of sharing, hacking and working on projects with some lovely, friendly people to help further the independent web.
