Don't forget, DMs on Mastodon have no guarantee of being private across different instances.
@shinobimonkey Or even the same
@kekcoin Yeah, but that goes for anything unencrypted. I think NVK will be trustworthy for that as anyone. But cross instance, it all comes down to the other instance's settings/trustworthiness.
@shinobimonkey @kekcoin but same for twitter right?
@2big2fail @kekcoin No. Twitter is a single instance with a single point of trust.
If you DM with someone on a different Mastodon server, whether that stays private is entirely up to the other instance operators settings.
@shinobimonkey @2big2fail The fediverse is an adversarial network. Think critically about the trust model.
