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.

Ratings and Reviews
I joined Micro.blog recently and have really been enjoying the service as an alternative to sites like Twitter. It really encourages thoughtful writing and interaction between users.
As far as the app goes, I love the clean design and use of Avenir. It would be great to have tabs at the bottom of the screen rather than the menu system plus gesture support for each post to reach conversations, replies, etc. I often find myself bringing up the options with inadvertent taps on different posts.
I realise that this is a lot of work but down the line it would also be good to be able to expand images in the timeline, choose custom fonts and toggle a dark mode.
I can’t wait to see future developments!
