ooh I need to note if it's already been RT'd

Something went wrong trying to retweet

twitter rejected it because it was already retweeted

thought so
#

Does Loqi need to remeber that it has already RTd? Or can we let the Twitter API take care of it?

Will be interesting if Instagram ships the "regram" button. I've had a theory that the lack of a photo re-post feature was deliberate... But of course it's a different company now in some ways. http://www.manton.org/2016/11/fake-news-and-instagram.html
#
tantek
I think it will be very bad for them if they ship regram
#
tantek
the noise level will go up :/
#
tantek
agreed with your post manton
#
[manton]
Good point about noise. Which is already pretty bad now with ads.
#
tantek
the ads I feel like I can "detect" and quickly scroll past fairly easily
#
[manton]
Thanks. Especially for photos, I think there's no substitute for posting your own photo. Just clicking retweet/repost isn't the same.
#
tantek
maybe it won't be as bad since IG doesn't auto-link URLs?
#
tantek
(which is what I think doomed Twitter retweets - most of the noise there seems to be from people retweeting other people just posting links with inflammatory/snide commentary on said link)
#
[manton]
I think it may encourage memes and other non-photos, which will add to the feeling of a cluttered timeline.
#
tantek
ugh yeah
#
Zegnat
I have seen plenty of "regramming". I think there are entire applications for it. Have seen it as part of marketing and give aways especially, much like on Facebook.
#
Zegnat
"repost this image and use the tag #... to win" kinda things
#
tantek
I typically see only curational "regramming" by topical accounts
#
tantek
and that's almost a feature, as they highlight stuff from lots of other accounts that I don't need to individually follow
#
tantek
and the quality is high
#
@gRegorLove
I put together a basic page that aggregates my want-to-read posts: https://gregorlove.com/reading/ Next I might work on adding tags so I can create more specific lists, like a gift wishlist. I tend to add books very easily, but that doesn't mean every one is on my wishlist. #indieweb

Tantek, thanks for the note yesterday about POSSEd Twitter likes. Somehow my code that handles that needs to be updated. (I'm not sure where Loqi is hiding the tell, but I'm guessing it was eaten because of the surrounding [] on username?
#
Zegnat
Regram and use a tag to win a gift card, example: http://i.imgur.com/4JQU1pk.jpg
#
tantek
I've seen them. used to see more but have seen fewer since the IG "reader" change to show you only some posts

tantek
what is The Algorithm
#
Loqi
It looks like we don't have a page for "The Algorithm" yet. Would you like to create it?
#
tantek
what is the Facebook Algorithm
#
Loqi
Facebook Master Algorithm is the name given to Facebook's algorithm for determining what content to show in Facebook's reader (AKA News Feed shown on their logged-in homepage), also adopted and tweaked by Instagram for their reader (app home screen) https://indieweb.org/Facebook_Algorithm
#
tantek
The Algorithm is Facebook Master Algorithm

Bring ? back ? chronological ? timelines

I feel like the biggest problem with repost/retweet/regram is the reader-side implementations. It’s good to enable people to elevate and highlight content that they identify with or find interesting. But, treating that content as a first-class citizen in equal footing with their own content is where it gets dicey.
#
[cleverdevil]
It’d be great if there was a way to filter timelines. That’s what I was planning for Together.

#
[cleverdevil]
I’ve come to really appreciate Micro.blog’s “Discover” view. Something like that, personalized based upon who I follow, would be ideal.
#
[cleverdevil]
See what my network is liking, reposting, bookmarking, etc, while keeping my timeline clean.

Looks like a linkblog?
#
tantek
it's an automated aggregation of what links Andy's followings are posting on Twitter
#
aaronpk
related to reposts, I want some way to visually mark posts that are from a domain external to the one it was found at. e.g. reposts, but also things like where news.indieweb.org reports the author of each post being the original author rather than itself.
#
aaronpk
can anyone think of an example of something that does that already? reposts might be the closest.
#
aaronpk
since twitter shows the post with the original author name/icon but says "tweeted by {friend you're following}"
#
[cleverdevil]
I like the little square with an arrow pointing up and right.
#
[cleverdevil]
Indicates a link “out”
#
[cleverdevil]
You could also use a chain link with an arrow.
