@c Nice post, but alas, when I liked it on my stream all it picked up was your author name as Title and the automated summary. I know it is all about the plumbing, but this is one of my chief niggles about automated syndication (by me) -- that there is so much variability in what is sent and received that it kind of makes a mockery of the process.

@jeremycherfas Ah yes, the problem of titleless posts and artificial character limits... Someone is going to get around to fixing those one day so that they are first class citizens, particularly in feed readers and the like. If you think this is bad though, you should see what I put up with in a hacked version of my Instagram feed that I pipe through a feed reader so that I don't have to put up with algorithmic time shifting or advertising. #onestepatatime

I did get both of your mentions however, so that's a bright spot. :)

@c I have no problem seeing my Instagram feed in chronological order in a reader. So that's another bright spot. At least for me.

@c Frankly I don’t think there were many left on Google+ to move to some place else. A sad fact that even Google accepted I guess. But I agree with your jist - at ever chance, more people need to move to someplace they own.
