  • Short microblog posts or full-length posts.
  • Markdown for styling.

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.
