- Mastodon is a federated and open version of twitter. You can use choose between multiple different competing public and private servers called instances. You can also run and use your own instance which is best practice from a trust perspective. Users can interact and 'follow' across instances.

- DMs are not encrypted so instance admins can read them.

- The bitcoinhackers instance is run by @nvk who we trust to keep it up, protect our privacy, and to not censor us.

This move to mastodon is something special. It reaffirms my belief that you can't stop bitcoiners. You can try, but we're just going to run you over.

Running GrapheneOS on a Pixel 4a thanks to @mattodell
The TFTC YouTube instructions (search for Matt Odell Graphene) were necessary to get by a few of the steps that didn鈥檛 have all the details on the Graphene site instructions. I would recommend following the steps on the Graphene site and using the YouTube tutorial to follow along and double check each step.

@kristapsk @mattodell

now i am seeing them back up. i'm troubled by this because seemed to be saying they'd identified a bug and fixed it, which seemed to be confirmed, but then it went down again temporarily(?). As per original message, we are living on borrowed time with this arch. God knows how we move to anything else.

The censorship playbook is straight forward.
Identify critical participants and pressure them.

Our response is two fold. Reduce the ability to identify participants and reduce the importance of any specific participant.
