@firstdogonthemoon Many people on Twitter include their Signal address for private communications, so people already distrust even the non-federated Twitter setup

@merospit sure ok i get it - but if people want this to be a twitter alternative that’s not going to cut it - it’s just going to be niche

@firstdogonthemoon Yes, although I have never found the need to use Twitter DM's, they are a core part of the service for many people and Mastodon lacks the ability to secure them right now
