Guys if you want the government to take over Twitter and force it to be ‘a public platform’ (sounds pretty communist to me) AT LEAST call for it to be open source too. This “repeal section 230 but let Twitter hold us at the mercy of its proprietary algorithms while placating the people” idea doesn’t sound like a good deal for us.

@alex I'd settle for just forcing twitter to join the fediverse. The problem is I don't think everyone else's instance could take that kind of data pipe 🤣

@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 anyway

@ngp @alex then you have not seen Twitter's Mastodon account.

@GNUxeava @alex there's a mastodon account on twitter, it has no official affiliation with twitter afaik
