micro.blog doesn’t auto-generate links to handles?

| Comments

Grr. I’d assumed micro.blog would generate a link to a user when I tagged them in a syndicated post from my site (e.g. with @leonp), just as Twitter does. But alas, no.

@leonp I agree with this. How does the person know you mentioned them? There should be a tagging system for f some sort. To help generate conversations

@terrygrier Ironically enough, Twitter does this, but I’m not leonp on Twitter, so some other guy got tagged. There’s a Jekyll (the software my site runs on) plugin that enables this, so I might look at that.
