My wife: It's okay to not be you.
we need to improve the UX of mastodon to better fit the mental model of how it actually works
"None of these changes fundamentally ruin Tweetbot, but they certainly make the app less useful."
Federated services are good and there are many use cases for it.
However, some people tell you over and over again that federation automatically implies more security and privacy.
