Also, it’s recently come to light that twitter employees abused their access to help foreign governments.
The fediverse is small and “nichey”, but we should be cognizant that our activity is most likely being collect and analyzed for various purposes.
I bring this up because it seems to me that some people likely take comfort in the successful brigading of people who publicly stated they intended to do this off the fediverse. The ones to be worried about are the ones we don’t know about.
Anyhow, be safe out there.

As soon you share something online, you have lost control over it. Imo there is no 'private' usage of a social media platfrom possible.

@ScottMortimer I expect it is already happening
