@firstdogonthemoon Many people on Twitter include their Signal address for private communications, so people already distrust even the non-federated Twitter setup

@firstdogonthemoon Yes, although I have never found the need to use Twitter DM's, they are a core part of the service for many people and Mastodon lacks the ability to secure them right now
