Thanks to Manton Reece, creator of Micro.blog, for archiving all of App.net’s data before the service was shut down and making it available to access.

Usage

Run the shortcut and provide your App.net username (without the @ symbol) to begin. The shortcut counts how many posts are available and asks for confirmation before it begins—it can take several minutes if you have a lot of posts to download.

Posts are made available as JSON dictionaries containing various pieces of information, such as the text and date created. All posts are downloaded and saved as individual JSON files to iCloud Drive at /Shortcuts/ADN Archive.
