@dajbelshaw Noterlive is primarily a posting interface to Twitter (mostly for livetweeting though it could continue to add some of that functionality in the future) that gives you back your data. You would still want to pay some attention to your account for side conversations and replies as well as other conference activity. In many cases I use it primarily as a note taking tool to keep content for archival purposes after the fact.

For additional two-way interaction you could use WordPress plugins like Webmention and Publish to get the comments, likes, etc. back to your website. I've outlined a piece of that type of workflow here: (This might also be useful to you if you've left Twitter, but still want to know when you're being mentioned without needing to log into Twitter to check it.)

Otherwise, you might also consider going full IndieWeb, in which case you could post everything directly from your website and syndicate to Twitter and then getting all the responses directly back to your site. Some of this depends on how much work you want to do to get the moving pieces working properly. You'll notice this is roughly what I'm doing on my own site with you now. Example:


@jgmac1106 Perhaps we might create and use a corner of the IndieWeb wiki to begin documenting the use of these types of things? We could start on the page and subsection them out as they grow in size and scope? If there are consuming applications for differing types of metadata, let's list those. The best answer may be to begin documenting pieces of what are out there and then figuring out a way to create more IndieWeb or decentralized and open versions of them. Having an editable, but centralized source of information can certainly be helpful. (Unless you know of another that already exists?)


@spigot I've sent you a few webmentions directly from my site. Be sure to check that they're not getting caught in your spam filter. See also:


@sophiaarichter @floatingtim also has some useful advice and help in these areas. They use things like POSSE, backfeed, and webmentions that allow site to site interaction that helps to solve the "bring folks to our sites" problem.


Anyone who didn't get enough of Open Domains Lab this afternoon is more than welcome to join in on the chat to continue conversing and building their website.


@spigot Yes, you have to publish first. Looks like there's something putting a lot of hidden svg files into your content. A plugin perhaps?
You can also find some potential help in the chat at


@johnjohnston This presentation makes my itch for a public multisite install with an stack even worse... I may have to pick your brain a bit more on it.


@openetc Have you considered adding the webmention plugins for site to site conversation between participants?


This is just the kind of post I added a chicken feed to my WordPress site for.


@SchumakerA Seeing your bio, I'll also note that there's a number of educators and related edtech folks in the as well.
Happy to help if you have any questions.


Thinking about going , but haven't made a platform choice? @GrabaPerch is an interesting choice with Webmention support and more. Also currently on sale!


@kaushalmodi @_dgoldsmith It looks like @schussman has gotten Webmention and display as well as a manual box working on his Hugo site as well, so he may be of some help too:


@Jorge_Romeo I've written a short intro to some of the pieces if you can't wait:


@kaushalmodi I know that @_dgoldsmith has gotten Webmention working with Hugo before, presuming that's what you're building on top of. is also a good place to ask.
