  • a [[tool]].
    • [[chat]]
    • I don't like using [[discord]] because it's not in the [[fediverse]], essentially.
      • [[tools]] in the knowledge and communication spaces that are not in the [[fediverse]] tend to give me the creeps in the long term.
      • But thankfully it can be [[bridged]] to the open/free internet relatively easily.
      • I prefer [[matrix]].
    • (Same goes mostly for tools which are not [[open source]], although I can more easily make exceptions to that. There is something deeply problematic about companies being closed with [[user data]].)

(Unsupported content elided by the Agora.)

Matrix is a federating database, kind of? It's generally less useful to define it by its actual technical spec than by saying it's the underpinning for "matrix chat", i.e. this thing which is now being officially called "Element". If you think of it like "Discord but open source, end-to-end encrypted by default, and self-hostable" you're not far off.

If you're curious and want to pay someone instead of spending your own time to admin it, check out Beeper which handles not only running the underlying Matrix instance, but also a bunch of bridges that let you talk to closed-source corporate messengers, e.g. WhatsApp, iMessage, etc. etc.

The Matrix protocol powers an open network for secure, decentralized communication.

From the Matrix.org home page:

Matrix is an open source project that publishes the Matrix open standard for secure, decentralised, real-time communication, and its Apache licensed reference implementations.

Maintained by the non-profit Matrix.org Foundation, we aim to create an open platform which is as independent, vibrant and evolving as the Web itself... but for communication.

As of June 2019, Matrix is out of beta, and the protocol is fully suitable for production usage.

Matrix is great for real-time communications, including voice and video. It features end-to-end encryption (based on the algorithm popularized by Signal), and does a lot of bridging.

The bridging aspect might be something to look at for Moa, including using Matrix as the bridge into specific systems.

Be careful with Twitter, they said. You'll get addicted.

I said: don't worry, I have it under control. I recognize you can get addicted to social networks; I'm doing this purposefully. I want to investigate how to hack dopamine hacking, in a way: how to use the dynamics that social networks exploit for my own benefit, or (stretch goal) for the benefit of society.

I still got hooked. I do believe a lot of what's come out of it thus far is productive: I try to use Twitter as an open note taking tool, to "think socially" -- to motivate myself to get my writing out there, even if it's in bite sized chunks. But I'm also falling prey to the algorithm; one that, of course, I can't control. The algorithm's objectives are not my objectives; I can try to bend it, but I can't replace it, so all in all Twitter is sometimes competitive instead of complementary.

In any case, these are what I consider the relative highlights of my Twitter career so far. I've set up go links for each of these to make referencing them easier.

I've also set up a trivial redirect from https://flancia.org/t/x to a Twitter search for 'x' in my account. Enjoy (?). E.g. https://flancia.org/t/agora .


  • [[Twitter]] could be part of the [[Agora]].
    • The [[Agora]] can exist anywhere in the internet where users can generate content.
    • I have started using [[wikilinks everywhere]]; even if they won't work right now, we'll make them work later :)
  • Aside: I hope [[Mastodon]] can replace Twitter some day, as it's open and user controlled.
  • See also:
    • [[tweet]] for, well, direct links to tweets.
    • Backlinks here for every person with a known Twitter account.

Twitter is a proprietary parasocial network. It is a good notion to avoid using it. The best thing about it is the big amount of good artwork posted there.

I used the [[Twitter Archive Eraser]] to delete all my favourites and all my tweets on Twitter.

This tool is much faster than all the other solutions I've seen because it requires you to download your Twitter archive, first. That's always a good idea. Then it gets the tweet ids from the archive instead of requesting them from Twitter itself, and that's what makes it so fast.

Same idea but do it yourself? [[tweetkiller]] is a Python script that does the same thing: it goes through your archive to extract the IDs.

Twitter is an American microblogging and social networking service on which users post and interact with messages known as "tweets". Registered users can post, like and retweet tweets, but unregistered users can only read them. Users access Twitter through its website interface or its mobile-device application software ("app"), though the service could also be accessed via SMS before April 2020. Twitter, Inc. is based in San Francisco, California, and has more than 25 offices around the world. Tweets were originally restricted to 140 characters, but was doubled to 280 for non-CJK languages in November 2017. Audio and video tweets remain limited to 140 seconds for most accounts. — Wikipedia



Twitter released internal research showing it “amplifies more tweets from rightwing politicians and news outlets than content from leftwing sources.” That’s something anyone paying attention has known for a while, but I guess it’s good to see the platform at least admit it

Twitter knows it’s spreading right-wing lies

So yes, it’s good to have proof of something we’ve known for a while, but don’t give Twitter too much credit when it’s still amplifying right-wing content and its CEO is not only complicit, but pushing right-wing trash of his own

Twitter knows it’s spreading right-wing lies
