@zempf Looks like it’s just taking time for the crawler to get to it - it’s showing up now on my original tweet

Steve Ivy #

@zempf Huh. Weird

Twitter cross-posting for #goldfrog is technically working, but the templates are not yet rendering the twitter metadata properly, so links are not showing up as nicely as I wish they would.

Next up will be mastodon posting.

The Twitter API part was easy, using go-twitter

The hard bits were writing the code to transmogrify a Post struct into reasonably formatted content for the cross-posted tweet, and then getting the template fixes done to provide the right metadata for a given link.
