Bund.de is the official German government portal for doing government-related paperwork online.
They have now created their own Mastodon instance at social.bund.de which contains some official accounts. You can find them on the instance's directory page:
➡️ https://social.bund.de/explore (in German)
This is a really promising sign! The Fediverse can allow citizens to interact with public officials without having to give away personal data.
@FediFollows this instance exists for quite some time afaik. I follow some of them for more than half a year, iirc.
Anyways, you're right about that. It is a good sign and I hope more accounts will be created there. We don't need twitter and meta to provide us "social" experiences.
@FediFollows now all that's left is to dismantle the concept of government and abolish state ownership and control of anything
Not only for government-related paperwork.
Also the official communication channel of the german government and Supreme Federal Authority @Bundespresseamt joined Feb 21 :)
The Press and Information Office of the Federal Government or in short Bundespresseamt (BPA), informs citizens and media at home about the work of the German Federal Government and briefs the latter about the news situation in Germany and worldwide.
