Microblogging Nanoformats

The official twitter lingo Twitter Syntax

Twitter (or Jaiku) nanoformats proposal

  • Nanoformats try to extend twitter capabilities to give more utility to the tool.
  • Nanoformats try to give more semantic information to the twitter post for better filtering.
  • Nanoformats try to use commonly used (or semi-standard) parameters like microformats
  • Nanoformats are better if more people use it, spread the word.
  • Nanoformats are even better if you combine.
  • Nanoformats are extensible, customizable, mashable...

Implementations

Some apps supporting some kind of nanoformat:

  • Twitter: @username for replies
  • Tagzania: L: to share with you twitter friends the place where you are.
  • Twittermap: L: to show your location (not standarized way)
  • Txioka event, time, L, adr ... and conversion from nanoformats->microformats (hCalendar, hListing, hCard)
  • plusplus bot tag++, @username++ to vote for or tag-- to vote against a tag or user
  • foamee @ioubeer @twitterscreenname for being an amazing human being
  • Hashtags #tag nanoformat is used as an easy way to track a specific topic or event

Use examples

  • New! translate your twitter feed into different languages using lang: nanoformat. Personalize it cloning this yahoo pipe (JP->EN yahoo pipe)

Syntax

Open discussions

  • tag++ and tag-- are been discussed better way can be ++tag or --tag (the same as other 1nanoformats), however ++tag isn't supported by http://plusplusbot.com.
    • question: is more regular to use ++ and -- before the word. Can we propose the change?
    • note -> this can be done using vote or rate nanoformats
    • Example: @psd++ for updating this page, thanks also to @factoryjoe L:Berkhamsted,UK #microformats
   * tag++ (discussion)
         o Used to 'plusplus' (vote for) a user or subject 
         o Example: microformats++ because they rock the disco!
         o Syntax: <tag-name>++

   * tag-- (discussion)
         o Used to 'minusminus' (vote against) a user or subject 
         o Example: drm-- for breaking my backups
         o Syntax: <tag-name>--
         o Tools: plusplus bot
  • [approved] proposal to use #group not only for groups, but for tags based common usage observed on Twitter as supported by http://hashtags.org/
    • We gave more flexible description to #tag and deprecate tag nanoformat.

Using more than one nanoformat in the same post

If you want to use more than one nanoformat in the same twit. You have to use at the end of the twit.

  • Example: great party event:beach party L:Ondarreta beach, Donostia
  • Generic example: <message> <nanoformats one each other>
  • Exception: @username commonly used at the start of the twit.
  • Example: @teketen I disagree with you! It's time:2007-06-24 21:00
  • Generic example: @username <message> <nanoformats one each other>

Don't use more than one nanoformat of the same type in the same twit

Is not a good idea use the same type nanoformat in the same twit. Twits can be a good unit to convert the information given in a twit into other formats for that reason only the things that have meaning together are interesting. If you want to explain more than one thing you should use an other twit to do that.

  • Wrong example: we go there tonight event:party event:home party
  • Example: great party event:beach party L:Ondarreta beach, Donostia
  • Exception: 1nanoformats. You can use more than one in the same twit.
  • Example: Summer night in Andoain http://tinyurl.com/2l6j8z L:Andoain, Gipuzkoa #summer #night
  • Generic Example: <message> <other nanoformats one each other> <#tag>*
