Workaround is to get access to a terminal session, either with ssh or TTYescape and add:

Mark Zuckerberg and team consider shutting down #Facebook and Instagram in Europe if Meta can not process Europeans’ data on US servers
Cue stories on how "hard" it is to build "a global service" in "changing and diverse regulatory environment" 😉
If you see that kind of reporting, please remember: it is Facebook's conscious business decision to run a global monopoly. If it was a decentralized, federated network, it would not have these kinds of problems. So, cry me a river! 🤷♀️
This Saturday I will hold a talk at #fosdem2022 about mainline Linux on mobile phones! Tune in live or watch it later!
Also check out the other great talks in the FOSS on Mobile Devices track!
We have a new podcast episode out! 🎙️ It's eeh... long.. so if you have an hour to spare and want to learn a bunch about the following, have a listen:

An absolutely amazing article about how GPS works. It's a great achievement to visually explain things so well on the web. (most likely needs a modern browser) https://ciechanow.ski/gps/
Did you notice that rather than on PC where you download a generic image which you can just live boot from USB, on ARM every distro needs to support every device individually? It's not just lacking mainline Linux support, it's also lacking a generic way to boot these devices like x86 has. #SPIflash can solve this perfectly by implementing UEFI on a dedicated chip but current new @PINE64 devices are lacking this. Let's get loud to make them add this again in new devices!
I want a Web where CDNs are unnecessary.
Where different organizations, different website operators, can help each other out by hosting assets for each others' websites, thus spreading the load across many orgs in solidarity, instead of centralizing it in gatekeepers.
