Endpoints:

/api/plain/users

Add new user by submitting a POST request to the /api/plain/users endpoint. If both ?url=X and ?nickname=X are not passed, or the user already exists in this registry, you will receive 400 Bad Request as a response. If you are unsure what went wrong, the error message should provide enough information for you to correct the request.

$ curl -X POST 'https://twtxt.tilde.institute/api/plain/users?url=https://foo.ext/twtxt.txt&nickname=foobar'
200 OK

Query responses are in descending chronological order. This means the newest user or tweet will be in the first row of the response, with older users or tweets in subsequent rows.
