The biggest question for me while researching @Libra_@twitter.com today was this: Is it possible for users who aren’t “founding members” (@facebook@twitter.com, paypal, visa, uber, etc) to gain access to the network and fully validate the “chain”?

> Hong Kong is passing a law to allow China to extradite ppl in HK who violates Chinese law, which is pretty much anyone that the Communist party hates. This will be the death blow to our freedom and sovereignty. That’s why we protest. 1.03 million people in Hong Kong (which means more than 1 /8th of total population) went to the march. BTW it’s sunny with over 90 degrees Fahrenheit and 77% humidity. We can’t lose our freedom!

70 jaar later. Men heeft er niks van geleerd.

I can't seem to open an issue on the GitLab. I have a bug/fr that's pretty annoying: from a boosted post, there is no way to go to the booster's profile. Clicking his name or icon doesn't work. The menu doesn't have an item either.

All the solutions needed are not known to anyone and therefore we must unite behind the science and find them together along the way. But you don’t listen to that. Because those answers are for solving a crisis that most of you don’t fully understand. Or don’t want to understand.
