This might be of interest to those of us still enjoying our prehistoric social media platform. This appears to be the cutting edge. The skinny is that Signal is rock solid secure and Telegram is not... but Telegram allows ‘groups’ whatever that looks like, and is probably secure enough for most of us who aren’t planning to overthrow the government.

NYTimes again. Fuckers.

Those things are fine for talking to people you already know. They need the publicly accessible networks to recruit new members.

A bit OT, but....I get a tiny kick out of "Parler", which the Ever-Erudite Americans say as *Parlor*, when it's French -- *Parlay* -- meaning "to speak". That might suggest that the alt right has progressed away from their Franco-phobic days when we were introduced to "Freedom Fries", etc. Razz
