Mastodon's federation introduces UX challenges.
One that worries me a lot is about message forgery. Anyone can forge a twoot, even cross-server.
Whereas Twitter Inc might be trustworthy enough to not forge transcripts. Anyone can run a Mastodon server and might want to abuse it to influence people (see Russian troll campaigns).
Should Mastodon "home servers" cryptographically sign updates? Should there be end-to-end signatures? Anyone has thoughts on this?
@isis the future is an endless ring of dead accounts, each pointing to the next like a grave marker; "HERE LIES VICTORIA'S FIRST MASTODON ACCOUNT, WALK THREE NODES LEFT FOR THE NEXT" someone scrawled on a boulder, which itself once was the cornerstone of a grand shitposting empire, capable of transcending the medium itself, breaking far past the limit of a mere 140 characters and accelerating itself into our hearts
