is activitypub a drop-in solution for twitter? No, there are absolutely going to be huge challenges trying to use it at twitter's scale. but it's the only thing close, and it's definitely the most solid platform to start iterating on.

anyway if jack wants twitter to implement activitypub, then very seriously we would love to have him—I do fundamentally believe the world is better when we collaborate on open standards.

As we've learned over the years, open standards aren't a panacea, and they need strong process to avoid being co-opted and distorted by corporate interests, but when it does work, it works *really well*

Really good set of articles on building distributed systems. I wish I'd had this when starting to build @sidekiq.

does anyone know who's running @dev_ponies @CobaltVelvet? Pleroma is trying to troubleshoot some activitypub incompatibilities.
