I believe it's important for everyone to own and retain control over their own content on the web, unfortunately tools to facilitate this are still mostly limited to developers. #IndieWeb

Can somebody recommend a privacy-respecting, not-tracking URL shortening service? #askmastodon

#Twitter claims interest in #decentralization for a while. They call their project #bluesky.

A self-organised group with "invited additional experts" in January this year "created a review of the ecosystem around protocols for social media".

Twitter thread with more information:

Just pushed some final changes for #WriteFreely v0.13, specifically the exclusive content feature powered by Web Monetization. I wasn’t going to include this in WF yet, since it previously required setting up an additional receipt verifier server. But now that there’s a publicly available receipt verifier, WF admins and users can enable this feature without any extra setup. Once I do a little more testing, I’ll merge that and then release v0.13!

@aral Twitter is actually an anti-social network because it refuses to speak with #fediverse instances.

You can turn off the news and sign off social media for a bit. It's okay.

Admins can now enable Auto Follow support!

More exciting updates to announce soon! 🎉 #pixelfed

given that the official Mastodon app is coming next year(?,) I’m going to FINALLY work on that iOS Mastodon Clients guide I’ve been meaning to write for the past four years.

I’d really appreciate any thoughts y’all have to share about specific apps (or about mobile social clients, in general.)

My gosh! Sure, I read the announcement earlier, but this is really cool to actually browse. Great implementation!

Nudged by @maxvel. :)

Shout out to @DavidBlue's excellent collection of Mastodon iOS clients, great list found linked in this issue:
