So I have auto-posting to Twitter working. I can modify the shortcut I’m using to publish photos, so it will also publish to Instagram, functionally using that service as syndication too.

Then it’s a matter of figuring out how to pull replies, likes, and/or links — any interaction in general — back here.

I’m curious how this will work if I publish something that is longer than 280 characters. Will IFTTT do the right thing and automatically truncate the post content to ensure the link is still present?

I’ll also have to test what happens if I publish something with a photo, links, and rich text. This one will have some rich text and I’ll have to test a post with an image later on.

I’m trying to figure out if the IndieWeb thing is something I should be integrating or not. It feels like there are three ways I could go:

  • IndieWeb
  • My own thing

The key is, I want to treat this site as the canonical place for my thoughts. Then syndicate to Twitter, etc. — treating those more like mechanisms for consumption. But I would prefer to pull all the reactions and whatnot back into this site.
