attach it to a #DeltaChat group or any other app with webxdc.org support and have fun and compete with friends to guess the word every day!
End-to-End encryption is one of the good things we have with the current internet and app ecosystems! But it's under constant threat -- be it from EU's #chatcontrol, UK's "online safety bill" or the current renewed "EARN IT" effort in the US: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2023/04/earn-it-bill-back-again-seeking-scan-our-messages-and-photos ....
anyone of these efforts succeeding would be a dangerous dam break. Let's collectively make sure all these governmental anti-privacy efforts fail!
news from the #hyperbridging frontlines of the currently possible ... why not use your emacs/IRC client to connect to a custom DeltaIRCD server where you can load DC accounts as well? or how about accessing the community channel via ` ssh ssh.masfloss.net -p 2023`? If some entity called "chatbot" crosses your paths and you chat with it: be careful, it's a gpt-ish intelligence also lingering in some channels :)

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:
Download on Demand, faster and more convenient account switching, improved stickers, improved defense active active attacks and that's not even all :) The Android and iOS releases are rolling out to the stores and desktop also soon arrives. https://delta.chat/en/2021-11-17-releases
