So signal is having technical difficulties due to user influx. Signal didn't want to decentralize because it wanted to be able to continue to provide a reliable exoerience. Yet here they are unable to provide a reliable experience BECAUSE they are centralized.

For folks looking for a completely FOSS and reproducible build of the Signal client, consider Molly, a hardened Signal fork:

Connects to signals' server and there is a 100% FOSS build option. Planning to test it myself hopefully soon!

Signal is down. I can't stop laughing.

Hey Moxie! Tell us again why centralization is the best way to deploy internet messaging for the masses.

I think they'll shrug it off, just like #cambridgeanalytica scandal and merge the 3 eventually to reduce development costs.

@deletefacebook Well well well! Look how the tables have turned!

So ironic! Facebook using our money to sell their ads to newspapers in order to make us use WhatsApp for selling their ads to us and make more money.


And my parents are saying this - "They downloaded the app but no one DMs them, only for Group chats the one guy who made the group texts in the group.."

Some people on Twitter - "Look we're using Chinese apps anyway so what?

If the gov is really bothered then like Chinese apps they would ban WhatsApp too! "

Apparently people are leaving and are moving back to saying this- I uSe gMaIL iNsTaGrAM cHrOmE aNyWaY. They are sharing news articles and 's tweets about end to end encryption and blindly believing whatever the spokesperson said. ~ Read the first few paragraphs in my blog..

Check the next posts for what I mean.

Happy New Year 🥳

We are preparing to release the next version that includes several new features and improvements.

The mobile app is almost ready for primetime, and we'll be shipping the Android version first (via @fdroidorg)!

PS - We have been working on text-only posts support 😉 #pixelfed
