running a federated mastodon behind a .onion is like wearing green camo at the shopping mall

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?

The year is 2017. The door to Mastodon has been sealed. Those inside toot for survival.

it is with a heavy heart that i must announce that the celebs are at it again

MASTODON UI: "What is on your mind?"
ME: "How did @dril get here so fast"

Hello friends, I'd just like to interject here for a moment.

Eugen needs money to live, and mastodon.social has server expenses, but money doesn't write code by itself. There's still 183 open issues on the Mastodon project github.
github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Writing a code patch to fix a problem or work in a feature helps not just mastodon.social, but also everyone else running Mastodon, too, and you'll have @Gargron's gratitude, and all the other devs' too.

Love, Trev

wondering if Salesforce is about to buy Twitter...

What if, by exiting twitter, we're actually in an alternate universe where the wikileaks account is really controlled by the same good folks at the ecuadorian embassy who cut off julian's internet

@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
