The story: "The Verge and 404 Media are building out new functions that would allow them to distribute posts on their sites and on federated platforms – like Threads, Mastodon and Bluesky – at the same time. Replies to those posts on those platforms become comments on their sites." Sounds great, but I've been blocked by a a paywall on 404 in the past, and this doesn't really work with an open fediverse. So there's going to need to be some thinking about how all this works (I'm also considering how a similar plan for OLDaily would work, though the number of comments on OLDaily posts is pretty minimal - it's more of a design exercise for me).
