Today's social networks are broken. Ads are everywhere. Hate and harassment are too common. Fake news spreads unchecked.

Replies, conversations, and a timeline to follow friends.

“Micro.blog is not an alternative silo: instead, it’s what you build when you believe that the web itself is the great social network.” — Brent Simmons

“Micro.blog is a small, friendly community and platform that understands the need for people to own their data but still freely express themselves on the web. A beacon of light in the darkness.” — Adam Procter
