The official Mastodon app sucks for iOS as well, yet I have it on my phone and beta test it. My go to app is Metatext as it’s the most simple to switch between timelines, see hashtages, etc. I’ve also had tooot for a while which is pretty good and I like Mastoot which just went into testflight beta testing. Mammoth is a new one that I’m also testing with Testflight and has some unique features like being able to see local timelines of other instances. Each app has its own unique functionality and interface and I feel like the abundance of them forces each to try harder and be better so it’s definitely not a bad thing to have a unique view of your corner of the Fediverse.

A Moscow court has fined the messenger service Threema €14,200 (CHF14,363) for refusing to share user data with Russian authorities under a domestic anti-terror law.

Analysis shows the utility has raised bills $26 annually over the last 11 years.

I don’t agree with this at all based entirely on history. Facts aren’t exaggerations. He was awful even based on the standards of his day. The recent series on Behind The Bastards makes this doubly clear while taking this into account. You don’t rape, mutilate and enslave those you see as humans unless you are a sadist.

Session is a decentralized fork of the signal code that eliminates metadata and doesn’t require a number you may want to check out

Sacheen Littlefeather, the activist for Native Americans who declined Marlon Brando’s Oscar for “The Godfather” on his behalf at the 1973 Academy Awards, died Sunday at 75, the Academy of Motion Pictures said. She had been suffering from breast cancer.

To better understand this rapidly changing situation, we conducted a very brief interview with the Federation of Anarchism Era, an organization with sections in Iran and Afghanistan.

As the Israeli military bombed homes, clinics, and schools in Gaza and threatened to push Palestinian families from their homes in Jerusalem May 2021, Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud executives signed a $1.22 billion contract to provide cloud technology to the Israeli government and military. By doing business with Israeli apartheid, Amazon and Google will make it easier for the Israeli government to surveil Palestinians and force them off their land.

The official apps for Android & iOS are getting ready to be released for Beta testing very soon. I’m not sure but there may be a FOSS third party app out for Android already

That’s cool that these posts can go so far with interoperability

Oh, definitely! I love when it all comes back home like that. I’m newer to PixelFed than Mastodon but I love how the two services work together through federation via Activity Pub along with Lemmy, etc. Really says a lot about the Fediverse that the origins of a post can get blurry and less important

Agreed! Dansup is great. Very transparent and connected to users and developers in a down to earth way. Will respond to you if you need help and clearly cares about the project and anyone using it while valuing your input.

Haha, yeah I have to give you credit for this. I first saw your post on my PixelFed account. Didn’t see it here but thought it was worth mentioning. Thanks for sharing as always!
