Instead of using Mastodon as a place to push out 'news' and articles that I come across that I find interesting, I'm doing that in a broadcast-only space:
It's the 'live' version of my weekly newsletter - i.e. I blast out links when I come across them, and then curate a subset of them in an email that goes out every Sunday:
what do you like at using proprietary software hosted through a central server solution?
...until noboday told me they like it, but everyone keeps on promoting it.
@dajbelshaw did they just changed it? Cause they started with only making the client opensource. Sever side is/was proprietary. ...so you basicly don't know what's happening with your data, and you even can't look it up.
also it gives telegram the power if cencorship as happend a couple of times already.
well if more ppl who care about free and open culture would say, choose something else or I'm out there wouldn't be a island problem.
(have high resistance in myself being an oportunist)
