A modest proposal for a micro.blog alternative to Reply All
Here’s something I think would be an awesome little feature for micro.blog. I and many others have asked for a Reply All, but it hasn’t appeared. I suspect that it isn’t hard to implement, it’s just not in the spirit of this community, and might be a road straight to spam.
Recently, I was replying to several people and I just tried dragging the name from their reply. It worked, except what I got was the URL of the blog instead of the @name format.
What if there were a button or icon in the reply header that, when clicked, would insert into the current open reply area, and when dragged, have “@name” as the drag content?
I feel like this would make replying to posts with a lot of comments much more fun.
