Twitter is funding a small independent team of up to five open source architects, engineers, and designers to develop an open and decentralized standard for social media. The goal is for Twitter to ultimately be a client of this standard. 🧵

As twitter wants to be the algorithm, I guess the new standard will ensure that the algorithm will get all the data.
And not only chunks.
@Billie "if you can't beat them, join them."
@codeberg sorry but this is BS. If he actually meant what he said, Twitter would simply join the existing, working fediverse.
What he's saying is basically "there is stuff out there and we don't control it, so we must define our own protocol to remain on top of things"
@codeberg so twitter is embracing, expanding and extinguishing, eh?
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
