This network is gonna be fun! I am already collecting orphaned accounts. People happily move from one instance to another. :/

Makes it easier for spammers to confuse everyone. So how many @realDonaldTrump accounts do we have already?

Mastodon's federation introduces UX challenges.

One that worries me a lot is about message forgery. Anyone can forge a twoot, even cross-server.

Whereas Twitter Inc might be trustworthy enough to not forge transcripts. Anyone can run a Mastodon server and might want to abuse it to influence people (see Russian troll campaigns).

Should Mastodon "home servers" cryptographically sign updates? Should there be end-to-end signatures? Anyone has thoughts on this?
