I would also like to point out that the developer's Patreon has been mysteriously cited as "in violation of community guidelines." Apparently, making a libre client program to the world's most prominent video sharing platform is against Patreon's "community guidelines." They should just be transparent and say they suspended it for preventing the flow of money into Google's wallet.

Hi Fediverse 👋
let me sum up the situation around #switchingsocial
Around September 20th, the original (anonymous) author of switching.social shut down its website and all related Social Media accounts, including mastodon 🤔
As there hasn't been any sign of life since then, I restored the website and created this new account. Right now I'm out of spare time to work on it, but that'll change in a few weeks 🙂
