#Censorship is enabled by proprietary software, repressive states, & complicit tech companies.

How can we fix this?

Three steps:
1. Host a chat app on your #FreedomBox

ActivityPub is still very young, only a couple months old.

Its great to see so much enthusiasm and new projects.

The network effect applies just as it does to traditional silo'd social media platforms.

It's just a matter of time for the fediverse to grow and become mainstream enough to sustain that model while providing a superior experience. #activitypub

Instagram & Twitter don't like each other, thats why you can't see IG images in tweets.

Mastodon/Pleroma & Anfora/Fontina/Pixelfed embrace each other, thanks to federation and the fact that we are open source projects.

I think thats pretty awesome. #activitypub

Basically only other countries have been taken out of the equation. American companies still take up 12 slots.
