Microblogging with WordPress

Manton Reece, on his blog, about the fact that he’s using WordPress to “tweet”:

I’m very excited about the potential for microblogging. For the last year I’ve been working on a new platform around this stuff. By adopting some of these tips for WordPress, your microblog will be ready for my platform, but more importantly your blog will be open and extensible. Let’s get back to our roots with RSS and see what tools and web sites we can build.

Ben Brooks is doing it too.

Very, very Indie Web. And awesome. I plan on doing the same with Barley soon.
