Just a reminder that Twitter perceives the Fediverse as a threat, and their project Blue Sky is actively spreading FUD about ActivityPub on their website. blueskyweb.xyz/blog/3-6-2022-a

Since this blog post was released, I've seen blue checks repeat these talking points.

I've seen them write, "The Fediverse could disappear tomorrow!"—as if one site has more persistence than thousands.

Or that if one instance crashes, the whole Fediverse follows.

It's all FUD, of course—a way to keep people on Twitter.

@atomicpoet The stupid article says "If your ActivityPub server shuts down, you lose..."

How about "If Twitter shuts you down, you lose... this scenario is not unlikely and has happened before"?

@niclas @atomicpoet Twitter could decide to suspend an account for any reason and you're basically SOL to even get an archive or a list of followers! With very little recourse to anyone who isn't being paid to make complaints to away as fast as possible.


Yes, that was my whole point...

I like passive/questioned statements, since it seems more effective arguing with those that disagree. There will be an attempt to answer that, then continue to question that answer until they either realize their absurd position or calls me a nazi/fascist/racist/whatever.

Maybe you should try it out? 😉
