Twitter crackdown calls for decentralised social media
| Thursday | 7th November, 2019
In this regard, city-based Free Software Movement of India (FSMI) has come up with a social networking website similar to Twitter which uses a decentralised system to store user information.
Launched in March 2019, the social media website, hosted on fsmi.social/main/public, has a layout similar to that of Twitter, with features such as ‘repeat’ — akin to retweet in Twitter and ‘star’ — which mimics the ‘like’ feature.
Speaking to Express, general secretary of the FSMI Kiran Chandra said, “A decentralised platform doesn’t have a single server.
In contrast, in a decentralised platform, you or a trusted group have complete freedom to express the content you wish,” Chandra said.
The issue began when Twitter suspended the account of SC lawyer Sanjay Hegde twice in one week.
