So @email@example.com & @ComicDaveSmith@twitter.com will soon be discussing what the libertarian perspective on big social censorship should be. It would be nice if they had an understanding of the decentralized (#fediverse) solution. reason.social & mises.social servers?
It's not internet censorship. It's platform censorship. Open protocols are why file sharing is still a problem for our corporate overlords. Join the #fediverse.
I appreciate everyone complaining about big social censorship (especially now that the government is admitting to being more involved), but if you're only using these closed platforms, you're helping them retain mindshare. People are forced to use them to read you. #fediverse
Back. They finally rejected my appeal but I then I deleted it (I mean they already deleted it but anyway). Fuck the magnetic prison this place has become, especially for people who care about "the news" and the dialogue around it. @firstname.lastname@example.org is going away. grow the #fediverse.
Hey @email@example.com, you need to face the fact that social media will outlive you. That you're in a unique position at a unique point in cultural/tech evolution. And you know that this medium could be the democratization of attention, if you'd actually demand decentralization: #fediverse
I know it's early, but is there any support for something I'd call #FediverseFebruary? Sometime before February 2022, help all your friends start a #fediverse account and get connected with yourself and others. Then when that month rolls around, we could all try not using big social. If we do it right, we should have no problems cause we'd all be here instead. Followings maintained etc. Network effect no more. What do you think?
very true @firstname.lastname@example.org, but we can fight back. we can tell people about decentralized social media without algorithms (or ads or control by government or corporations). research, explain, promote, support and use the #fediverse.
The people developing decentralized communications to challenge big media/tech are the modern version of the ACLU. Our fight has mostly moved on from government authoritarianism to keeping free expression out of the control of corporations & advertisers. #fediverse
Absolutely @email@example.com. But that's also why we need a strategy beyond services like @firstname.lastname@example.org, @SubstackInc@twitter.com & @Patreon@twitter.com. Protocols not platforms. Help developers build decentralized systems & get people to use them. The attention big names can bring is essential to that. #fediverse
Any technology that helps people break free of the control of government and corporations will be marginalized by the mainstream media. #fediverse
Hey @email@example.com, you know what algorithm works? @firstname.lastname@example.org. Join the #fediverse. Make the default feed LIFO but give us a tab that we can customize exactly like Reddit makes possible. No ads, no data mining. Be transparent about your costs. Let the market decide how much you're worth.
the #fediverse is awesome but so far, it makes the video experience less than ideal. with video, people don't primarily want a customized experience. we do like subscriptions, but mostly we want to either go directly to a video or easily find a video on desktop, mobile or the big screen. and a lot more people only consume and never post anything, compared to other social media formats. before creators use it more, they want to be able to recommend the experience.
