About demo.yarn.local

demo.yarn.local is a Pod; a Self-Hosted, Twitter™-like Decentralised micro-Blogging platform. No ads, no tracking, your content, your data!

Technically demo.yarn.local is a twtxt client in the form of a web application. You are viewing an instance of this software at demo.yarn.local. demo.yarn.local allows you to make small posts in a simple easy way without privacy concerns, advertising, tracking or the fear of censorship. Think of twtxt as somewhat like Twitter™ but unlike Twitter™ twtxt and demo.yarn.local (a pod) are designed to be decentralised.

The /timeline view displays the latest posts of users on this instance. Since twtxt itself is a federated and decentralised micro-blogging format there is no “global” timeline, so you can only discover posts from users on the same instance as you are on (demo.yarn.local in this case) or by searching for other twtxt feeds such as those available at

There is also a search engine that crawled and scrapes the Twtxt and network of pods called Yarns that is available at

This software and this instance demo.yarn.local requires user registration as it both hosts your twtxt feed as well as allows you to fetch, browse, follow and read other user’s feeds or external feeds. The following is a list of features that are provided:
