I published my first POSSE post earlier today, so I could see how well it works syndicating to Twitter. POSSE (Post on Own Site, Syndicate Everywhere) is a key tenent of the IndieWeb, but something I’ve never quite got working properly when I tried previously.
Things still need a little tweaked, and I won’t be syndicating every post, but ultimately I think it turned out OK. After a bit of to-and-fro with Brid.gy, my status post was posted to Twitter, and a like from one of my followers showed up on this site.
I’m not sure if I’ll want to include a link back to the site or not. The first post included a source link, but in my view it looks a bit odd on Twitter. I’ve turned source links off for the time being, and I’ll see how I get on.
Now, if I could just get OwnYourGram to start working properly…
