Retrieve all your subscriptions from a Microsub server

ek channels | awk '{print $1}' | xargs -n 1 ek follow
I would be nice if I could connect to the post interface at the top, to certain destinations or syndication-targets. That way posts in my Tweets channels would go to Twitter. #microsub #indiereader
