A patent on social content moderating (aka `shadow banning`) has been granted to facebook

New release of eclair incoming! https://github.com/ACINQ/eclair-mobile/releases/tag/v0.3.19-MAINNET

So, LN "short_channel_id" is a very underrated feature, it looks like `556877x862x1` and you can tell the block_height, tx_index and out_index!

New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.
Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.

Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.
