i saw a toot about it elsewhere but i can’t find it so: basically don’t trust mastodon for things you want to stay Actually Private. instance admins can read DMs, and instance admins can read the private posts of anyone their users follow. this is sort of inherent to the current architecture. and for all twitter’s sins, i trust the admins to not leak random people’s DMs more than i trust every instance admin ever.

@mediumvillain not really, no. there aren’t any on twitter, but I trust Twitter enough to come down like a sack of hammers on any admin dumb enough to read messages (and there’s safety in numbers there).
