One more advantage that #Wire has over #Signal: the devs have said they are working toward implementing #federation. If you think about it, you cannot rely upon any organization to remain non-evil in their intentions toward you. With federation, you and your contacts can disperse among various hosters or even #self-host, while still being able to stay in contact with one another.
Good luck trying to stay in touch if you close your account on a non-federated #corpocentric chat and messaging service.
@lnxw48a1 Signal's visible distrust of others and deep reliance on its own systems makes it a shockingly vulnerable system to correctly applied pressure. De minimise, it should have both federation and true Linux client support (not Chrome extension or w/e)... Oh well.
