Micro.blog is...
1. The fastest way to blog.
2. A safe community for microblogs.

  • Short microblog posts or full-length posts.
  • Markdown for styling.
  • Custom themes.
  • Categories, photos, podcasts, video, and more.

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

There's a better way: a network of independent microblogs. Short posts like tweets but on your own web site that you control.

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
