@FediFollows Thanks for helping spread the word about Snikket, and the perfect summary of the project 🙂

We have several exciting announcements planned in the coming weeks! Between the recent progress on the project and #WhatsApp's crazy announcement, it feels like the time is right for a big shift in how people think about communication.

Every new group of people self-hosting their own mini messaging service is a win for the internet and online privacy. Exciting times!

The latest #WhatsApp news is part of a general trend where companies erode their own privacy policies over time. It is rare that you will ever see a privacy policy update that adds clauses in its users' favour.

These companies need more data to thrive and grow. It's how they work, it's their DNA.

I believe that only communication platforms with no central ownership can be trusted. That's why I'm working hard on @snikket_im. I already migrated my family to it, and it's going great!

I forgot about mailo. It looks privacy/family friendly without the high price of proton and tutanota

Does any one know of any kind of directory of disabled small businesses/makers/online shops?

I've never seen anything like this but I know a lot of fellow disabled folks have to figure out creative ways to survive capitalism and it would be cool to have an organized way to support each other as we are able.

Boosts encouraged. 👍🏻

@nipos @ademalsasa I had a similar experience, it was unreliable. Hopefully they get things worked out in the future I found it very straight forward and well designed.

There is it's incredible if you haven't tried it.

I didn't even know a desktop version existed. Is it cross platform?

Element is a huge improvement in UX it separates chats and rooms which makes it usable for non techies if they only need an IM

I could swear I heard wire was purchased by an american hedge fund:(

#Google starts to lock out non-official Chrome builds like #Chromium. The #web is a cricual infrastructure these days and as such we need independent browsers and rendering engines!

If you care about the free and open web you shouldn't use Chrome based browsers.
