I'm excited to share my #apconf2020 talk, "Decentralized Social Media vs the Trolls."
In it, I tell how the #Fediverse, a #decentralized social network, rallied together to isolate an invasive right wing extremist group through codes of conduct, human moderators, and strong moderation tools.
(Hosted on a #peertube instance, conf.tube!)
@Argus this is a very important success story!
(Although ironically, the Peertube account the video is hosted at only federated one post with mastodon.social, so I can't boost that video directly and see its comments here.)
@Argus I'm guessing federation across different types of instances of the Fediverse is actually not *that* useful (at the moment at least), so smoothing out interop bugs is not of high priority. It's okay.
For now people just don't expect something like a cross-instance "Follow" button in various UIs.
