micro.blog is a microblogging and social networking service created by Manton Reece. It was launched on April 24, 2017, after a Kickstarter campaign that reached its funding target within one day.[1][2] Micro.blog is the first large multi-user social media service to support the Webmention and Micropub protocols standardized by the World Wide Web Consortium.[3] The service was built using Jekyll, and users can post using hosted accounts, then use RSS feeds to export their posts, and syndicate them into the network from other websites they run. Users can also import their posts from Twitter and the defunct microblogging service App.net.

The web hosting service DreamHost supported micro.blog's Kickstarter campaign,[4] and announced their intent to help customers create independent microblogs hosted at DreamHost that are compatible with micro.blog.[5]
