Q. Aral, what alternative would you recommend to this capitalist product that should really be a public tool for the common good?

A. A post-capitalist one that’s a public tool for the common good. There isn’t one? Then maybe we should fund an independent organisation from the public purse and task it with building it.

@aral Or we use revenue from GDPR fines and taxation on social media companies to help fund the fediverse.
