(1) Una comparación de lo intrusiva que es la App de Twitter para Android (la de iOS es igual) y cómo son las de Mastodon (Fedilab y Tusky).

Las apps de Mastodon sólo piden los permisos estrictamente necesarios para funcionar: Almacenamiento (para subir y descargar fotos), vibración, etc. Twitter en cambio tiene una lista de 40 permisos.

Además que Twitter, a parte de rastrear a sus usuarios por su cuenta, tiene 2 trackers: uno de Google y otro para recopilar métricas de usuarios.
