Apple forced Telegram to censor channels run by Belarus protestors: https://decrypt.co/44339/telegram-forced-to-close-channels-run-by-belarus-protestors
@typenil Interesting article. Knee-jerk reaction is Apple is in the wrong, but I can see their concern about it escalating the violence by identifying members of the oppressive party.
@bpepple it’s a fair discussion to have - I just don’t think it’s Apple’s place to unilaterally make those decisions for all iOS apps and users.
Would be different if side loading was an option.
It’s frustrating that we really only have a choice of being in Google’s all seeing eye or in Apple’s daycare.

Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
