Yeah I agree, here’s my reasoning behind why I wanna use an app instead of the PWA version

I know about Fritter and Nitter but I actually want an account so I thought Twidere would be better than PWA because twitter this way won’t get data about my hardware or be able to fingerprint me (I think)

So it’ll get the same info that Reddit kinda have on me? Like interests and likes and so on

Maybe I should use a VPN.


I know it isn’t a front end but what’s wrong with trusting it? It’s FOSS

From Wikipedia:

In an April 2012 interview Noam Chomsky said that while Mondragon offers an alternative to capitalism, it was still embedded in a capitalist system which limits Mondragon’s decisions:

Take the most advanced case: Mondragon. It’s worker-owned, it’s not worker managed, although the management does come from the workforce often, but it’s in a market system and they still exploit workers in South America, and they do things that are harmful to the society as a whole and they have no choice. If you’re in a system where you must make a profit in order to survive, you’re compelled to ignore negative externalities, effects on others.

I don’t usually quote Chomsky lol

What are the privacy issues with using twitter via Twidere?

Say you make an account without a phone number via firefox (no vpn) then you only use it via Twidere X…

Won’t someone think of the businesses

And to be clear, I absolutely agree that capitalism touches everything but I’m just looking for something to watch without it getting on my nerves :)

Basically something a leftist can easily enjoy

@dessalines@lemmy.ml Just watched this and yeah she’s a lib alright

For anyone wondering, this is “Shoshana Zuboff on surveillance capitalism | VPRO Documentary”

Looks interesting given how long her book is, thanks!

I know about The Great Hack and it’s kinda the thing I’m trying to avoid lol

Good documentaries about surveillance capitalism?

I don’t want any “Russia stole the elections” BS …

Glad to hear that, keep up the good work!

I don’t feel strongly about it… I don’t mind opening an issue if the devs are interested though

No it’s just a sorting option that shows the newest comments even if they’re in reply to other ones

When you choose the Chat option to sort comments you can't unselect it by pressing it again

You’ve to choose something other than New…

I’m surprised no one mentioned the very difficult captcha which almost turned me away… I think you once mentioned the reason why you use it instead of something like hcapatcha but it’s a real problem imo

The button that collapses threads, it doesn’t even say anything when you hover over it

Some of the options look promising, thanks!

Yes I’ve the article but haven’t uploaded it yet. Protonmail isn’t a practical option really

How to share articles/posts privately via links?

Imagine you wrote an article or something but only wanna share it with specific people and keep it private otherwise, how would you go about doing that? the easier the better…

How can I share a couple of pics with someone via a privacy friendly site?

They aren’t really sensitive and I can’t send them directly …

What next after recognizing the supposed genocide of Uyghurs? (discussion post)

Should China be nuked? Basically, what is the end goal? Or just a new cold war (which I think has been in the making)? …

Maybe the solution to the fighting that happens on Lemmy is users sharing some common ground? Ways to cultivate that?

Instead of dealing with the constant stream of posts maybe every now and then we can have a big discussion about a fundamental topic? …

Make the navigation bar stick

Or at least appear when you scroll up, that way the user doesn’t have to scroll all the way up…

A feature to see a comment's context in the inbox tab?

This way you don’t have to keep opening tabs if you got a bunch of replies…

A feature to mark posts as seen?

This way we don’t have to come across the same posts over and over again…
