Today's social networks are broken. Ads are everywhere. Hate and harassment are too common. Fake news spreads unchecked.
There's a better way: a network of independent microblogs. Short posts like tweets but on your own web site that you control.
Mikro.blog is a safe community for microblogs. A timeline to follow friends and discover new posts. Blog hosting built on open standards.
“Micro.blog is not an alternative silo: instead, it’s what you build when you believe that the web itself is the great social network.” - Brent Simmons
“Micro.blog is a small, friendly community and platform that understands the need for people to own their data but still freely express themselves on the web. A beacon of light in the darkness.” - Adam Procter
