💾 [Feedbin Feature Request] Direct link to Micro.blog conversation

This post will be shortly sent to support@feedbin.com.

Here goes as per Feedbin’s feature request instructions:

1️⃣ Sell it! Why would this make a good feature?

Feedbin already has excellent Micro.blog integration! 🙏 With just a few bits of improvements, including this one, Feedbin can practically replace the native app. This makes it more likely for Feedbin to become the one place to consume content from.

The request is to add a direct link to the Micro blog converstion, alongside the Thread view. This feature would:

  • make the UX more consistent with the Twitter integration
  • eliminate friction by reducing app switching

2️⃣ Good features should appeal to many. Not just you.

Micro.blog is also a community formed around conversations. People interact daily on the platform. Some of us find a feed reader the best way to catch up with posts (see this post, and its conversation). Not all are Feedbin users, but those who are will love a better integration.

3️⃣ How do you envision the feature would work? Use descriptions, mock-ups whatever helps communicate your vision.

4️⃣ Most of the time the hardest part of any feature is building an interface for it, so extra points if you can help out with that.

Combining 3️⃣& 4️⃣. Let’s take a Twitter post example, as in the screenshot below.

The Micro.blog integration could work in similar fashion:

  • Message bubble icon would open the Thread in Feedbin, as it works already now
  • The service icon would open the external link to the conversation

5️⃣ Above all contributing code is the best way to get a feature started.

Sorry, no can do. 🙂
