Hey, #fediverse! I'm doing some research on the uses of Federated software by non-governmental organizations. I'm curious to see if NGOs use federated tools (especially Mastodon, but any fedi tools) to organize outside of corporate systems (e.g., Google, FB).

If you have tips, please send them my way! DMs are fine, and I will not publish names outside this space without consent.

Boosts appreciatd.

The iOS privacy labels show the difference: One protects and values your privacy, the other abuses your data to maximize profits. Choose wisely! 😀 #Tutanota #Gmail Let's fight for #privacy together! 💪

"One of the reasons why getting full access to your device is really tempting for governments is the same reason it’s tempting for abusive partners and former partners: we carry tracking devices in our pockets." - EFF Director of Cybersecurity @evacide ted.com/talks/eva_galperin_wha
