twtxt.net v0.0.6 Release Notes

Release Date: 2020-07-23 // almost 2 years ago
  • This is a bit of a minor bug-fix release, but also contains a couple of important features for "Discoverability".

    Highlights:

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed a bug where you were logged out every ~10mins due to incorrect configuration handling of sessions.
    • ๐Ÿ†• NEW: Added a new feature whereby other twtxt clients that follow or hit your feed for the first time are detected and a special post is made with a special feed called twtxt which will popup in the /discover view and added to your "Followers" list in /settings. Hopefully this will help with discovering new users out in the wild that might follow your posts! Happy twt'ing! ๐Ÿค—
