Are a lot of people from Chile joining Mastodon today?

@Gargron yeah, most people from Chile are coming here after local independent news account @PiensaPrensaOficial was deleted (but later reinstated) by Twitter after some alt-right accounts denounced them.

I knew the birdsite was out of control with the bots manipulating reporting algorythms, but a news account? Insane!

@IronMan Looks like it's not just us!

@AgentCarter_SSR @Gargron @PiensaPrensaOficial @IronMan unfortunately, bot accounts used for fake news spreading are quite common here in Chile and mostly created by supporters of an alt-right political party and vocal supporters of Pinochet and his Dictatorship

@Caribu
It's been a growing problem here, as well.

I don't think most people are understanding how grave it can become here.

Recently, the handling of online defamation has become a hot topic on many mass media as well as social media channels. News Article for Reference: https://www.jiji.com/sp/article?k=2020052500387 In response to these reports, it is expected that lawsuits and disclosure requests will become more publicly known; and government agencies will order stricter enforcement in addition to tightening regulations. However, under the current state of Japan, we will not be able to handle the increase of such administrative burdens and will have trouble dealing with it appropriately. Thus, we have decided to stop providing our service on mstdn.jp and mastodon.cloud starting June 30, 2020. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding on the matter.
