@abucci@anthony.buc.ci hmmm, I wouldn’t say more important, but something they value more. Until you have an attack or an identity theft you know the real value of your privacy. Until that moment it’s ‘worthless’, and for that reason the time required to take care of that is infinitely expensive

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci I would say there are only a few good thinks about cryptocurrency (disclaimer, I received funding to work on it) but now the bad parts overcame the few good things. Usually I don’t like to think on black and white terms, but different amounts of gray, which makes the conversation very hard for a few twts.

@prologic@twtxt.net I get it. I think in the past we had the discussion about centralization, decentralization, distributed and even federated. It’s an important distinction.

I haven’t read the Signal documentation, only used it (and then I moved to Telegram and Session). That said, why do you say or think that Salty is similar to Signal?

I’m suspecting of being more recognized as a brand that other hipster solutions, is that the case?

In-reply-to » 👋 Hey y'all Yarn.social and Twtxt users out there 🙇‍♂️ One of our sister projects we recently begun work on a few months ago this year (2022) is called Salty IM -- Some of you may have heard of it, seen it, even played with it. If you haven't do check it out! 🙏

@prologic@twtxt.net I can’t disagree, although if you read both proposals, they have some similarities on goals, use of libraries, anonymity and such. Anyways my bet is on all of you 😀

@prologic@twtxt.net It’s late over here, I’ll try to take a look in the week but I briefly checked it since criptography has been a hobby interest for me.

That said, I think https://getsession.org or Jami, are more related to Salty than Signal.

In-reply-to » Related with my current conversation, what do you think of using twtxt.txt as a format for feeds?

@mckinley@twtxt.net I guess I didn’t say it correctly.

I didn’t know about that page, it’s cool!

About how do they use Twtxt as a feed, I agree on the problem you mention, and of the lack of a convention (unless we use the title/subject as someone suggested later) for automated parsing

Related with my current conversation, what do you think of using twtxt.txt as a format for feeds?

Indeed I knew the format since it was used in Gemini capsules as a sort of Atom alternative

In-reply-to » For people born after the 90s (no one here I suppose), this was Active Desktop: Media Instead of a static image, show a Dynamic Web page refreshed every X minutes. Good memories of the old .com web portals of that age

@movq@uninformativ.de Active Desktop and Channels were related but the latter is more related to RSS, on receiving new content automatically. Active desktop was only showing a web page.

If I remember correctly, Internet Explorer 4.0 introduced a ‘standard’ to get low-bandwidth notifications to know when new content was available, but I can’t recall if it were only the notification, or if you can read everything there, as you can do with RSS: Push technology

Edit: I found it Channel Definition Format

In-reply-to » Guys, I have a bad news, I went through the twtxt-osphere : - I found 1289 twtxt account - among those 721 are accessible ( 712 http / 9 gemini / 0 gopher) - but only 111 account are still active in 2022 :S (107 http / 4 gemini / 0 gopher).

I’m in #236 (with a forgotten .txt I’m not planning to use anymore) and #31 with this account. The one I started a few days ago is not there: https://eapl.mx/twtxt.txt (I’m not complaining :P)

How do you find interconnections? With follows and mentions?

If I can add something, I disable now all the Home Pages with news. I don’t care about them anymore, but I like models like Reddit/HackerNews/Lobste.ts/Antenna.

More in the model “I’ll check them when I want, not when you are pushing it to me”

But that’s another discussion.

@movq@uninformativ.de yeah, I agree on the Feed icon and discoverability in general, following the trend that most web 2.0 services stopped supporting RSS (in 2010 I think?). Again, it’s like they don’t want the common user to know that exists, perhaps for not promoting browsing the web but an alternative way to consume content (hiding most ads in the process)

And then Firefox includes Pocket, which is the first thing I disable 🙃

@tkanos@twtxt.net I’ve seen much more than 9 Gemini accesible twtxt files, perhaps the capsules are down? 🤔

Also, what’s the difference between found and accessible? Being linked in any page counts as found and then the link being broken makes it non accesible?

@tkanos@twtxt.net interesting, kudos for the hard work.

Saying something obvious here, I think twtxt as a plain text format is so easy to create but not so easy to consume and extremely hard to use as a conversations tool.

It’s missing the famous ‘network effect’ to hook into real conversations. So it could transform into a communication protocol, rather than a timed text format.

@prologic@twtxt.net if influence © is motivating to twt more often, I guess it’s a good influence 😛

In-reply-to » Just noticed that Firefox now downloads feeds (Atom, RSS), which is a little less than helpful. 🙄

personally, I haven’t used Feeds like I used to do 10+ ago. I don’t care about following blogs anymore, but following people and topics (on Twitter, Twtxt, etc) and curated content (newsletters, a bit of pinterest…), I don’t read news anymore. I listed to a lot of podcast but the directories get the Feed URL for me.

Perhaps that’s a bad habit remaining from social media usage. Changing how I consume/get periodic content. Makes me think 🤔

@movq@uninformativ.de interesting point. Perhaps you’ve seen the official take title Firefox removes core product support for RSS/Atom feeds | Use Tables!

“These features have long had outsized maintenance and security costs relative to their usage”, which amounted to 0.01 percent of sessions.

Which could be innacurate since most power users disable telemetry. Anyway, for some reason, most mainstream browsers avoid supporting Feeds, and I think it’s a matter of advertising and trends. We could use a plugin/extension tho.

In-reply-to » 🥳 🥳 🥳 Congratulations Yarn.social community!!! Today is a fantastic day! Why? Because we've reached a new milestone. We have reached a Monthly Active User (MAU) count of 100 😅 Unbelievable! 🤣 Well done all! 👏 Media

@prologic@twtxt.net a MAU is every person using Yarn.social/twtxt.net at least once in the last 30 days ? BTW, that dashboard looks cool,

Congratulations, may those 100 MAUs be the first of many more 🥳🎉

In-reply-to » @tkanos a quick question, I'm using twet (thanks for the recommendation), how do the clients announce between them that you have replied to a previous twt?

@abucci@anthony.buc.ci Didn’t know about WebSub, it’s really cool everything around the simple .txt file to make it work a a social protocol.

Thanks for sharing your knowledge 😀

In-reply-to » @tkanos a quick question, I'm using twet (thanks for the recommendation), how do the clients announce between them that you have replied to a previous twt?

@prologic@twtxt.net If I remember correctly, we were discussing a few months ago options like Webmention, I have never used it, although sounds better in my mind than parsing the access_log.

That search engine you mention or a global Database of Twt hashes could help. I remember that Twitter users had an external search platform, acquired later by Twitter: https://techcrunch.com/2008/07/15/confirmed-twitter-acquires-summize-search-engine/

As @tkanos@twtxt.net said, a comment in the txt file like: Notify me on this email, or automatically register your feed in this URL as Antenna does, would be a nice addition. I assume that if you are replying you are interested in making a dual connection, so they can answer you back. Just thinking out loud.

In-reply-to » Please don't test it for now BUT just to announce that the version 0.1.0 alpha (not yet tested) of my future twtxt client twx has been pushed.

@tkanos@twtxt.net My question goes more in if someone replies to me, and I don’t follow them, how can I know they is trying to do it?

I guess they need to contact me somehow to request a follow, right?

You have to follow the other person and the clients look for replies for each of your twts?

In-reply-to » @~eaplmx 👆 this is amazing! Thanks to the designer of this extension: https://dev.twtxt.net/doc/twthashextension.html

@lyse@lyse.isobeef.org Thank you! I didn’t remember that section :o

Looking at those options, it seems that jenny requires mutt (I don’t use it) and perhaps won’t be compatible with Windows (I have WSL, so it’s not a problem), I can’t find how to install twet, and twtr looks better but says it’s deprecated 🙃
