@email@example.com Yeah, that’s the weakest point of raw twtxt: Discoverability. If you don’t have access to your server’s logs, then you’ll have a hard time finding out if someone mentioned you.
In the beginning, jenny actually used to include the list of people that you follow in the twtxt file. This has later been changed for privacy reasons. (You can still include such a list at the top of your feed, but you’d have to do it manually or with a script or something.)
The huge advantage of Yarn is that it’s a server-side application. When someone fetches your feed, Yarn will know and it can tell you. That’s just not possible with plain files.
(btw, the URL to my feed should include a
www.. Since you omitted that, my jenny didn’t highlight your messages. 😅)
