Google has suspended Element (@matrix) from the Play Store for "Sexual Content and Profanity". Basically same story as with Subway Tooter a while back. Element is to Matrix as Chrome is to the web. Curiously, Chrome is still on the Play Store.

Want to know why that advert follows you around the web? Join us for a discussion with @EdinburghUni on the how, where and why of "micro-targeting" in political campaigns.

Delta Chat is probably the most scalable messenger today.
Even if a billion users migrated to our apps, we would be fine and it wouldn't ruin us. Our Operating Costs hardly increase with more users. A pretty unique strategic economical advantage, isn't it?

I don't understand why some people were "laughing" about being down.

I fully agree that decentralization is clearly a better alternative to .

However, IMO, each person that leaves WhatsApp, should be counted as a victory. Even if it's still towards or Signal.

Don't be an arrogant a**hole, help people leave WhatsApp. This migration shows us that more and more people are becoming aware of their right to privacy.

Let's just live one day at a time, shall we?

ProTip: Remember to check your URLs for "utm_*" parameters

E.G. If I see:
"?utm_source=reddit.com" at the end of the URL you shared, I know you got it from Reddit

Or "utm_campaign=newsletter0120" tells me you probably copied it from an email sent in January of last year

These are never needed to actually reach the page you're sharing. They're just for analytics (UTM tracking modules) and will reveal where you get your information (to us and the site), which may cause privacy issues

Those are two of the best posts I've seen on a social network in a very long time.
Huge respect for the admin of mstdn.io standing up for the users after being asked about blocking an instance.

You other admins can take note, this is the way to go.

Ladies and gents, I'd like to introduce you to Simple.css - a new classless CSS framework built by yours truly.


The web based Mastodon-client @pinafore is just as good on the phone as it is on the computer. It's lightweight, clean and a joy to use.

One of my favourite features with Pinafore must be the wellness settings. I really like that it supports pagination to prevent endless scrolling.

The only thing I miss is support for multiple accounts on the same server. :)

Stop using "Zoom" as a general term for video conferencing.
Stop using "Google" as a general term for searching the web.

Where can you buy DRM-free e-books?

I've added 11 new DRM-free e-books, magazine and comic shops to Libreture's list of bookshops this month alone.

There's more to e-books than just Amazon and Kobo!
