WordPress.com May Have Best Following Reader integration #IndieWeb

I add the blogs I follow widget.

I then search and find a blog to follow. I click follow.

I then see it on my blog as a follow.

I then see @pauljacobson's post in my reader.

I also think these features will be built into new social readers when you add someone to a following page they are added to your atom/rss/whatever reader and these following pages could then by syndicated to some site that will help to index page.

Hey just read this https://tatianiabond2017.wordpress.com/2018/10/15/technology-vs-people/ and I think we need to be more critical of the tech we use.

@morganknutson Thanks for the work you and all the designers did on Google+. Became so essential, was so loved by educators. Even though it was a corporate silo it felt open enough. We all syndicated Blogger and WordPress, used the comments plugin, almost felt like the open web

Had hvac team come in, my office no longer under under 60 degrees every day, but in terms of compressor cycling on and off every two minutes, nothing to do, Compressor is literally above my office. It fires so often so loud. I can no longer record. Makes online teaching hard

As a side note I forgot the one thing that handles Twitter threads and webmentions better than WordPress and Bridgy Publish is Known. If you simply send out a reply to your own status updates and syndicate both to Twitter the magic just happens.
