Threads? Not Mastadon? Well, *that's not good enough.* I'm voting uncommitted 😤 /s

For real. Dark Brandon wouldn’t do threads.

I thought he was on the femboy breeding college instance 🤔

Doesn't seem to work.

$ curl https://threads.net/.well-known/webfinger?resource=acct:potus@threads.net

{"subject":"acct:potus@threads.net","links":[{"href":"https://threads.net/ap/users/17841445266116124/","rel":"self","type":"application/activity+json"},{"href":"https://www.threads.net/@potus","rel":"http://webfinger.net/rel/profile-page","type":"text/html"}]}

$ curl https://threads.net/ap/users/17841445266116124/

Weird, maybe you have to use an ActivityPub server to complete the lookup? I managed to get it to work with Mastodon and Akkoma, but haven't tried anything else.

Edit: alternatively, try doing a Webfinger lookup for @potus@threads.net directly?

I was testing it with curl because my self-hosted Mastodon server doesn't find it.

The leading @ is incorrect for a webfinger account lookup.
