@ngp Fortunately the Fediverse is designed to scale. 😛 In the case of a huge remote server, only posts from people your server follows will be ingested.
@alex oh that's true. Good luck convincing twitter to implement ActivityPub though. I'd expect a lot of large Fediverse instances to block @twitter.com anyway
@ngp They’re already talking about “BlueSky” (their own project to federate Twitter) but I get the sense they have no clue what they’re doing.
@alex I bet it's one of those projects they threw the interns/junior engineers on so it will be implemented poorly (or not actually get completed). I can't think of a monetary incentive for twitter to federate.
@ngp I think they want to federate because they wanted to ban the president and be able to say “well you can just start your own.” Now that they already did it I’m not sure it’s a priority for them anymore.
@alex they're still in a pretty legal grey area with regards to public-square type freedom of speech. They may continue to work on it out of fear of getting regulated out of existence.
