He mentioned #JNUProtests right in the beginning. "इस सरकार से एक विश्व्विद्यालय तो बना नहीं मगर एक तोड़ने की कोशिश ज़रूर चल रही है"

#Bolivia | Indigenous communities march to La Paz, defending their flag, as well as rejecting the coup and its leaders. Our correspondent Alejandro Kirk brings us this report from there.

@Gargron Hey, since this instance now has thousands of Indian users with heavy engagement, can you please also add casteism to this point?
@guneetnarula Just the fact that it's public compounds the issue, but Federated social networks aren't alone in this issue. I've personally had a fake Facebook profile made of me, and there's virtually no way to get rid of it because of the vast bureaucracy inside of companies like Facebook.
Impersonation is a big issue in federated social networks. I can't have my username registered in all possible instances of mastodon. So someone else could impersonate me on another instance, follow you, and start saying or doing things that I don't approve of. This is dangerous and has been well known for the last couple of years. The solution does not look easy to me.. plus it is hard to argue that the solution is non-technical
Personally, while I have kept track of alternatives such as Mastodon since their inception, I always thought that a mass exodus would be difficult. There is something to be said about the creativity of calling out the blue tick as a digital janeu and using creative hashtags to call out the birdsite
I work in tech and development. Interested in open source, open data, open access, design for dissent, maps, public transport and wordpress. Oh and really long road trips.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
