Over the course of the past couple of months I’ve become more aware of the privacy issues of the modern internet. I’m not paranoid, but I’m also not a fan of big corporations tracking me and trying to sell me stuff.
Back in the day, I left Hotmail and signed up for Gmail...
@Angeles I suspected something like this. Thanks for the reply!
#newbie question: I tried to use bridge.joinmastodon.org to find bird site friends, but I keep getting an error message when trying to authorize it for @email@example.com (the Mastodon authorization worked fine). Is it broken or am I doing something wrong?
Hi Mastodon! 👋 Trying to get away from the big corporations this year, so I left Gmail and am now trying this instead of the bird site (where I'm not really active anyway). Just turned 38, I'm Swiss 🇨🇭, female, ace 🌈 and spend waaay too much time online, watching tv shows and dreaming of going back to New Zealand 🇳🇿. We'll see how this goes. 😆 #introduction
38, Swiss. Bookish / fangirl / introvert / traveler / chocoholic / anglophile.
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.
