So glad the EU Commission is now spouting its propaganda on fedi! Such a win.
A tip for people used to birdsite's algorithms creating their timelines for them:
This thing works like Twitter did a long time ago. Your timelines are what you make them!
Liberally follow, unfollow, and mute accounts. Use the filter preferences (e.g. with "#eurovision" "@twitter.com"). Create a new timeline with hashtags to follow. In short: treat your timelines like a garden, both planting and pruning to your liking.
(And as always, even then it's obviously easy to still use any software you want. So the mass surveillance almost exclusively affects non-criminals.)
EU: All messenger services should be required to interoperate.
Also EU: We will fund opensource software, like e.g. messenger clients.

This particular type of bird can make amazing sounds by the way. It's like a little drum machine.
Came back to Hacker House after nobody was there since December. A bird came down the chimney pipe and tried to break into the kitchen through a plastic foil that we just taped over a hole in the wall, since we want to connect a kitchen hood to it.
The poor thing must have thought it was doing some spectacular heist, but unfortunately it ended its life subscription in the process. Can't say I'm thrilled about the sight.
