"Centralised messenger Signal has just announced that they are making part of their server software closed source. They claim it is to fight spam, but by using closed source they make it impossible for outsiders to verify the truth. This is worrying.

We really, really need a fully open, decentralised alternative to Signal.

There are several alternatives being developed, please support them:

➡️ @matrix

➡️ @delta

➡️ @briar

➡️ @Jami "

    I’m here to say this is a welcome addition. I’ve received 2 spam messages in the last few months, which is an increase from 0 in the last few years I’ve used Signal. I’m glad they’re getting ahead of this cat and mouse game and hope people don’t get all paranoid. The client is still open source. Your payloads are all still E2EE.
