Use Apple Shortcuts to publish a selected blockquote, with or without commentary, to Micro.blog.
This shortcut provides a quick and easy way to publish a blockquote from a Safari webpage (or in-app Safari web view), with or without a comment, to Micro.blog. Just select the text you want to quote, hit the share button in the toolbar, and run this shortcut. You’re given the option to add a comment and review the text before publishing.
When you add your own comment to the quote, the post adds the “u-in-reply-to” class to the link so that Micro.blog will automatically send a Webmention to the quoted site, letting it know that you responded on your blog.
This shortcut was adapted from a version shared by Greg Morris on Micro.blog.
