There’s not a good way to do that right now. I do plan to add importing from Mastodon’s following export file, though, which will make it easier to move people from Mastodon to Micro.blog. It would also be possible to write a script using Micro.blog’s API to follow users if you know their username.
I’ve been thinking about keeping a 500-character copy of posts to use when sending cross-posts to Mastodon, but I don’t know when or if that will happen. Need to experiment a little to understand if it’s even a good idea. It seemed like a good idea, but the inconsistency could also make things more confusing than they already are.
Quick question - when some of this stuff comes out - where I’m gonna see the changelog or announcement? I want to track myself when I’m gonna be able to import followers instead of checking this thread every couple days:)
I’ve been posting changes to news.micro.blog. Currently, if you follow @news it only includes the “most important” highlights from changes, but I’m thinking about changing that to include everything so it’s easier to stay up to date.
