@Hyolobrika @fediverse If you find that surprising, I highly recommend reading this: https://github.com/privacytools/privacytools.io/issues/779 #Signal was in the shitter from the start, but like #DuckDuckGo it managed to accumulate unjust momentum from overly loyal non-critical-thinking followers.
"The 105 people, men, women and children, will most likely be forced into life rafts in the Aegean Sea, left drifting as we speak."
You know what the stupidest part about Musk wanting to reinstate Trump’s Twitter is? It actually violates Musk's stated goal for Twitter: to make a place where there are transparent rules that are fairly applied.
The problem with Trump's social media bans is that they landed after he had repeatedly, flagrantly flouted the rules that the platforms used to kick off *lots* of other people, of all political persuasions.
I just found an excuse to link an article which I just boosted.
This really is a must-read article from Cory Doctorow.
As always, Cory puts it into a (much) wider perspective:
"Thankfully, an anonymous Polish ex-Medtronic [=ventilator manufacturer] employee had kept the unlock code generator from his previous job, and he cloned it, ... and mailed them to med-techs at hospitals around the world, saving lives."
That hero is technically a criminal ... (thus anonymous) 🤷

Another tip: Every Mastodon account has RSS built in. Just add .rss to the end of the URL for your account, e.g. email@example.com
That lets people follow your public posts from an RSS reader, but it's also useful if you wanted to use IFTTT to crosspost your public posts to another platform.
Zahl der #Vögel drastisch gesunken
„In den heimischen Wäldern und auf den #Wiesen erleben wir einen dramatischen #Vogelschwund. Seit 1998 sind 2 von 5 Vögeln aus diesem Lebensraum verschwunden“, schildert Katharina Loupal von #BirdLife #Österreich die Lage. Denn den Vögeln würden Nahrung und #Brutplätze fehlen. Letzteres liege daran, „dass wir immer mehr #Spritzmittel ausbringen und dass wichtige Elemente in der Landschaft wie #Brachen, #Hecken oder #Bäume fehlen“.
