Interesting stats from @snarfed what it costs to run Brid.gy. It's not cheap (~$1300/year) but not crazy expensive either for 5000 accounts. Wondering if a lightweight, one person setup would be possible though. Using brid.gy for some reason feels like another SPOF outside of my control snarfed.org/2018-01-02_bridgy-

@mdbraber good find! it's actually been just ~$800/yr for the last couple years, and current run rate is down to ~$450/yr.

regardless, if you run it yourself for just your own accounts, it should fit entirely within app engine's free tier. you'd need a few config tweaks, specifically reverting github.com/snarfed/bridgy/comm . background in github.com/snarfed/bridgy/issu

@snarfed thanks for the pointers Ryan! I'd be definitelly interested to look into running my own instance (just as w/ webmention.io). Thanks for building this!
