Yeah, Mastodon is certainly better than Twitter, but you know what would make it even better?
If Mastodon got end-to-end encryption for DMs before Twitter did.
@crash I hear it's in the works.
@crash Yes, please.
@crash what's the point of e2e if you can't verify the client anyway
@charlag One would assume that would be part of the process, I guess?
@jasper @charlag I'd prefer end to end, though. Democratization of social media's pretty cool, but I don't like the idea of every admin for every instance involved in the DMs being able to read the conversation. My understanding is that's where we are now. (I trust /my/ admins, but not /every/ admin.)
I've had more than one reply telling me e2e for Mastodon is in the works, though, so that may someday soon be a thing.
Not pointing out until now that you were referring to Twitter when you came into my mentions led to some confusion.
But thank you for providing unsolicited, vague commentary in my mentions and then getting upset that I did not know who you were.
@crash I don't expect anyone to know it and I'm sorry for being unclear but for sure you can verify most of Mastodon clients, why would I talk about Mastodon
@charlag My initial toot was hoping for a change to Mastodon. It was part of the conversation that you joined, and looking at the thread it's been the lion's share of the discussion.
Also ... we're on Mastodon. When I'm talking about Twitter's need for improvement, I do that on Twitter, where the Twitter users are.
@crash I guess we just have different contexts, I knew that Mastodon is getting e2e and you didn't and the other way around as far as I understand.
@charlag Yes, several people on here have let me know since I made my initial toot, and I'm happy to have learned something new.
Gargron is working on it
