The thing that really impresses me about Mastodon is the number of native clients available in the App Store. It leaves me scratching my head why Gab wasn’t able to emulate this model to bypass the App Store ban? Basically, they could publish a white label client (no Gab branding) but users then add a Gab API key after install to make it into a Gab app. What am I missing here?
Perhaps Mastodon could even serve a role in LN routing. 🤔 Imagine a Lightning bolt icon next to the star icon below a toot. Instantly send a tip to that person with the press of a button.
