Interesting thread about the security / abuse vulnerabilities that are inherent to federated platforms like Mastodon. https://twitter.com/adrienneleigh/status/1030213888850030592
“It’s like I’ve moved to a new town where nobody knows me, but everyone is looking to make new friends.”
The final quote of this Wired article sums it up perfectly.
The Italics for Source Serif were just released, and I am very happy about it!
Just as a heads-up, don’t use PMs/DMs on Mastodon, and if you have to never share any private information.
Admins of sending and receiving instances can read those, as there is no end-to-end encryption. Even if you trust the admins, instance ownership could change or hackers or government could get in.
Use different tools designed specifically for this.

General request: if you post pictures, please please include alt text describing the image so that everyone, regardless of visual ability, can enjoy your toot.
Please consider asking others to do this. Optionally, reconsider boosting toots if they don't have alt text.
We all have an opportunity to help shape the culture of this place and I'd love, love, love if it were "oh, everyone posts alt text with their images because that's just what you do."
