#ActivityPub support is live! You can now follow *Public* Write.as blogs from Mastodon, such as our @blog

It's limited to Public blogs right now (a paid feature) so we can slowly roll this out and plug holes as needed -- once I'm confident things are stable in the next few days, it'll be available to everyone for free.

You can read a bit more about the update, and I'd love to hear any feedback / ideas / bugs here! discuss.write.as/t/activitypub

@write_as

If anyone is having difficulty getting a follow link through Mastodon, try @blog (or AT blog AT write.as)

@switchingsocial @write_as For anybody slow-in-the-brain as I am trying to follow something non-Masto from Masto for the first time:

In the web UI of Mastodon, you enter the address of the thing you're trying to follow in the search box, and you will get a result with an option to follow.

And I must say, that's pretty friggin cool. 😮 Thank-you Mastodon, ActivityPub, and write.as!

@switchingsocial @write_as Is it normal that no toots show up in my view of your profile? It seems to know there are 25 toots / blog posts, but none show up. Does masto only fetch recent ones perhaps?

@teleclimber @switchingsocial Yep, that's what the "Information below may reflect the user's profile incompletely" disclaimer is about.

You'll notice this with new Mastodon accounts too -- Masto just doesn't fetch old posts. But once someone on your instance is following an account, you'll start to see the profile populated with posts
