@tomosaigon Facebook, Google, Twitter, Amazon, Microsoft, etc can easily change how people think with their algorithms, they can manipulate them since they choose what people see and think
@werwolf Could newspapers do the same thing? Or how about me typing out random toots over Fosstodon?
@tomosaigon you'll still be under Twitter control since they tend to "shadowban" people, trends are manipulated, etc. But I guess that it's better than nothing
@werwolf True, I or someone I follow could be shadowbanned (but never experienced it myself) or actually banned. Twitter has to deal with mass scaling issues that so far don't affect us on Fosstodon.
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
