Ultimately Mastodon's killer feature is that it's a public good that someone built because they thought it needed to exist and not a startup someone built because they wanted to get rich quick selling other people's data.


@brunodias I was thinking about this today. I was sitting in a public place seeing a woman frenetically using WhatsApp and I started thinking about how WhatsApp is sort of a fever here in Brazil. Something that is so pervasive and useful should not be in the hands of a corporation. Even worse that it's only one corporation. If it were just a protocol that numerous apps could access it would be far less worse, by the way.
