Turned off my #nitter instance for a day.
Had coomers using up all my VPSs bandwidth.

For now, beauty_network0 redirects people to /r/nofap

@gabriel They did the same to nitter.snopyta.org. They'll eventually do this to every other #nitter instance as well. Maybe they'll use this to their advantage and get rid of every other privacy frontend to every platform, so you must log into the mainstream platforms and create accounts if need be. That's what'll lock you in and make you not want to delete your accounts. Before you know it, you'll be addicted soon.

Here's another instance you can try: https://nitter.slipfox.xyz
(It's run by @slips)

Not to the ones you host privately and not make reachable from the outside 😉
@gabriel

@m0xee @james@pleroma.jamesp.org @gabriel Until your IP address is blocked, or they’ll just make the APIs private so it’s impossible.

I think at this point you’re just better off escaping big tech platforms and relying on others to crosspost to the fediverse, once we get to that point.

@james
Fortunately for us, it's really hard to do so with webapps — of course they can add some keys and obfuscate the way they are generated with javascript, but a skilled web developer will still figure it out.
I agree, not relying on centralized social media is the right way. Nitter is pretty much all I use as Russian Twitter community is an invaluable source of news on politics and such, most "real" news outlets were censored long ago, even online ones.

@james
I've never had a Twitter account — reading is all I do so Nitter is perfect for me. I don't know why this community doesn't migrate to Fedi though, considering Twitter has your phone number and you can go to prison easily for posting "wrong" things. Well, they still want their thousands of followers I guess 🤷
