Is anyone else of you using twtxt? If so, which client are you using?
Looks like a great platform for experiments. Twitter for ed/sed users.

Awesome, from a hacker's POV.

I'm not into microbloggin (more into blogging0 but it seems really cool.
Sort of like RSS for mini quotes, if I'm not mistaken.

If I ever want to "twit" I'll do it this way.

Thanks for sharing.

If you care about the freedom aspect and have concerns about twitters business model, privacy etc, you could check out https://quitter.se. It's part of GNU social.

The problem with Quitter, Friendica etc. is that it's still centralized. Not free enough.

I do have a Quitter account (which I rarely use), but a major advantage compared to Twitter is not really existing. Every few months Quitter sees a sudden rise of activity. Not for long though.

This is pretty useful if you're a person who's only going to share stuff or read from others; but if you're willing to interact I'm yet to find a tool that let's manage mentiones, replies, etc... a bit more.

Twitter is a micro-blog, not a chat! Kids today ... :-)

It's sad that Twitter tries to be a better Facebook these days. For those interested in its original purpose, twtxt might be perfect. However, twtxt does support interactions. You'll just need to refresh manually. (Or with a cronjob...)

Even blogs support comments and sharing so I don't get it.

I read it does and it's perfect for twtxt purpose, but can't be compared to the engagement achieved on Twitter

Well, yes, the accessibility of twtxt is slightly lower because of the non-existent central web interface. It has other strengths though.
