Microblogging with Wordpress

I love the idea, I’ve always been for owning my own content, but I love twitter too, so that always felt like an incostistency, but I always view it as the price to pay to use the platform and it was a fair price for what I get in return from Twitter. I’m not sure if I’ll end up using it since I’ve been toying with the idea of using a proper static generator based website. Unfortunately my host doesn’t support ssh access for now so I’m stuck, unless I change it of course. We’ll see what the future brings ;)
