Instead of using @discord to organize (proprietary, closed-source, centralized and unencrypted), @RiotChat ( built on Matrix, is libre, open-source, decentralized and end-to-end encrypted.
Similarly, rather than using #WhatsApp, #Messenger or @telegram please use @signalapp or @session_app (#Session uses the same encryption protocol as #Signal but does not require a phone number to log in, is decentralized and #onion rooted).

1. sono molto scettica di quello che scrivono oggi i giornali sulla #chat #Wickr usata da #Savoini. Gli articoli che rappresentano la #chat in modo dubbio perché fornisce #messaggicifrati con cifratura military-grade. Embè? Chiunque dovrebbe usare cifratura military-grade
2. i giornalisti in particolare hanno il dovere etico di usare #cifratura #weapon-grade per proteggere le fonti. Molti di noi la usiamo da anni: c'è qualcosa di sinistro? NO
3. #Wickr è la #chat usata dei #DemocraticiUSA dopo l'hackeraggio delle email della #Clinton: NON è affatto un prodotto sinistro, usato da gente equivoca a letto con i russi. E se #Savoini si fosse scambiato messaggi compromettenti su #Wickr, temo che non finirà bene

@VICE @motherboard in Germany is spreading a lie that @facebook @messenger end-to-end encrypted "secret conversations" can be decrypted; because the author @ok_but_why does not know what an HMAC is …
The piece runs thusly (via Google Translate) - and it conflates the abuse-reporting mechanism with the "Franking" mechanism that "Secret Conversations" uses, and which (a) @matthew_d_green helped design and (b) is fully documented.

I know, because I led the project. #lol
The Franking mechanism is designed to support abuse-reporting: if Alice receives abusive material (eg: unwanted dick-pics) then she may want to report them to Facebook... but (given the nature of E2E) how can we trust Alice not to make a bogus report to incriminate Bob?
