@simonwoods Got it. Nope, I meant on Micro.blog. Guess that's ok. There was some conversation on M.B about how people don't tend to click thru on such posts so people tend to re-link to the same posts with a better description. In my case, replies to the latter don't generate webmentions on my blog but they will to the former. Anyway, not a big deal though.
@manton @blot I agree re: messy. Unless M.B. picks up the teaser (when specified) instead of the title and then appends the link. Personally, I prefer those short descriptive posts with the link embedded within a phrase of the text. Not sure how that can be done on M.B. unless that's how we style the teaser too.
@pratik I have a workaround for getting the replies to "re-link to the same posts with a better description" on micro.blog as webmentions. Just make that relink short post as a reply to the original title only post on micro.blog. So replies to the short posts are in a way replies to the longer post as the short post itself is a reply :)
I use this at rare occasions, but I also use blot for my microposts.
