Some folks on birdsite are tagging our project account in tweets like "hey jack twitter should copy this thing mastodon does". The idea that this is merely about features is short-sighted. Twitter will never, ever, ever be your friend. They are the shareholders' friend, not yours. No feature will let you see what their engineers are working on, what's under the hood. No feature will fix their headquarters in the US following and enforcing US laws and customs worldwide.

‘Facebook Enabled Advertisers to Reach ‘Jew Haters’’

“Want to market Nazi memorabilia, or recruit marchers for a far-right rally? Facebook’s self-service ad-buying platform had the right audience for you.”

Some context might be helpful: Gab provides service to Andrew Anglin, founder of The Daily Stormer. Judging by the HN thread Anglin recently posted a bunch of personal attacks against Heather Heyer, the victim of the white nationalist terrorist attack in Charlottesville we're all likely aware of. This proved too much for Gab's registrar, who threatened to take Gab's domain down unless they removed Anglin's posts. Gab's response to this is a predictable "muh free speech".

Beyond that nonsense it's funny that they talk about the future of a decentralized Web, while running a centralized service.
