Micro.blog is a timeline and publishing platform for microblogs.
Micro.blog shows recent posts from sites and people you are following. Microblog posts are short — quick thoughts, links to web sites, and replies to friends. It's a fast timeline that's powered by the open web.
Publish to your own site, host directly on Micro.blog, or use any service that can generate RSS feeds. Text in each post should be short, 280 characters or less, without a title. Then just add your RSS feed to Micro.blog and anyone can follow you.
Instead of trying to be a full social network, Micro.blog is a thin layer that glues the open web together, making it more useful. Micro.blog adds discovery and conversations on top of previously unconnected blog posts.
* Improved sharing from Safari to include both the URL and selected text. Use the share button in the bottom toolbar.
* Improved text size to more closely match system defaults. The text in the timeline is slightly bigger now.
* Fixed accessibility when writing a new post so that VoiceOver can be used.
* Fixed sharing images from some apps.
* Fixed prompting for multiple blogs when posting to an external site.
* Fixed default size when scaling photos.
* Disabled username auto-complete on iOS 10 to work around crashes. This feature now requires iOS 11 or later.
Ratings and Reviews
A work in progress, but great concept
For me this feels more like a beta than a finished product. It is very slow, and some important features (editing posts!) are still missing, but it is mostly solid, and tech support is superb. It a great concept and I’m happy to support anyone trying to fight for a more open web. I hope it succeeds!
Whenever I want to share a thought on my blog or cross-posted to Facebook/Twitter, this is the app I use. Open, publish, done.
A better way to post/tweet/blog
Micro.blog allows you to connect with other people while still owning your own stuff. It’s great!
