@JoeBuhlig Cool. I deleted the big "reply" I posted the other day, & it "seemed" to delete, but still shows on your embedded microblog. Was thinking my delete would remove it from your embed, and then my tweet would hit your embed. Yeah... testing. Thought maybe it was done w/ webmentions.

@RichGriese My site uses webmentions.io. But I download the webmentions when new ones arrive so that the context of my replies always remains.

So the micro blog on your site is dealing with mentions more like emails, where you use webmention.io to deliver you the tweet/reply, and retain a copy? For example, I've got my tweets to delete after a week, but on your site they will remain even after deleted?
BTW... if you get a chance some time, perhaps we can talk on Discord (if you use that too). You'll find an invite to a server I use primarily to enable meeting to exchange friend requests easier. Enjoy life!
I've only read of webmentions, the idea being that your site would automatically reflected edits/changes on the source site, you in effect would display a dynamic reference to the source. So, your using webmentions, but then making a actual copy to your embed display?
I’m not truly “embedding.” I’m using the services to capture the data, store it, and then display it. All done via APIs or JSON/XML feeds.
If it helps to think of it that way, sure. But I tend to think of all communication methods in turns of an inbox to be processed.
I tend to edit (mostly) before I ever publish. I can only think of one or two cases where I deleted. In those cases I do it manually. Not worth the extra work.
