Really, what I want to say here is shame on #Amandine_Le_Pape
, the BDFLs and creators of Matrix, for even allowing #Element
to be available in the Google Playstore - Is the Irony lost on you?
But I can't. I understand. Because it was, at the time, the only vehicle they could use to popularize Matrix.
But that time is passed, #Google
, and many others are hemorrhaging profusely; exsanguination through the mass panicky evacuations of its userbase to some nobler, loftier, fairer and deserving places on the Internet, so don't fret folks, this is a sign of very good things bourne out of the Evil that are the monolithic silos that have stolen, packaged, inventoried, and distributed your identity and privacy.
These types of occurrences are merely the deadly grasping at straws, or anyone on the surface of the water who tries to reach out to these drowning, diabolical industries - make no mistake, they are the person drowning who will pull you down with them if you accept their apologies or peace offerings.
Go somewhere else away from them, don't worry, and be happy.
In the meantime, install #Element
at F-Droid and be done with any and all of those text and video chat systems that the evil silos gave you, like the witch, offering the poison apple.
Matrix does it all and respects your ultimate privacy in the process.
Matrix is used, and indeed its use is ebraced by the governments and military of #France
- BIG TIME, just one of those governments inked a deal with Matrix in the largest ever financial communications contract of its kind (Yes, EVER!).
It's also used by the U.S. Government - because they need to have that which they seek to deny you.... Complete and total privacy in private, #encrypted #communications
Here are the stated beliefs which form the principles upon which #Matrix
is founded. ***I too, believe in these things***:
* People should have full control over their own communication.
* People should not be locked into centralized communication silos, but instead be free to pick who they choose to host their communication without limiting who they can reach.
* The ability to converse securely and privately is a basic human right.
* Communication should be available to everyone as a free and open, unencumbered, standard and global network.
So, when you #believe
in perverse, subversive ideals such as those, well.... Of course they're going to #cancel_culture
you and do their best to #deplatform
you Just like all of the others recently, and this my friends, this is how a paradigmatic shift in culture is spawned.https://element.io/blog/element-on-google-play-store/
