Malcolm, thanks for the reminder. I’ve been meaning to circle around and test out Unicyclic’s reader. It’s very slick looking and wonderfully clean. I do wonder where the html version of twitter-atom you mention is hiding? Do you mean the HTML output from I tried that and indeed your Twitter output is one of the better looking ones out there. I piped it into Monocle as well and that has a pretty solid appearance too. One of the subtle differences that I notice between the two is whether the context that the tweet is a reply to another tweet is above (Monocle) or below (Unicyclic) the tweet content itself. I’m not quite sure which I personally prefer, though I suspect that if put to a vote, the majority of the public may think above makes more sense–especially since that’s the way Twitter works, though I think there’s a case to be made that the order should be changed in a feed reader. I really like the way you’re using the reply and quotation icons within the tweets to provide better visual context. It’s a really nice visual shortcut to quickly provide context. I think my favorite part is that I can give you an OPML file to import feeds. I wish some of the microsub clients did this. (Of course I tried handing Unicyclic a huge OPML feed with 85 sources and it died just a few in, but still it’s way better than moving all my follow data over one at a time using cut and paste.) Keep up the good work!
Malcolm, I’m noticing you have both a u-categoryand a u-in-reply-to wrapped on the URL of my post in your replies. I’m curious what function the category serves for you? As a result, the WordPress post-type discovery algorithm makes all of your “replies” show up in my set up as “tags” instead. I’m not sure if it’s a quirk on your end, or maybe if it’s something I should file as a bug to the WordPress plugin?

Ooh, nice. I was just wondering if it had a microformats version. Looking much better in Monocle now!
