I think I never posted a Twitter link here, but today that's changing:
Twitter is introducing fucking Twitter Stories (ahem, Fleets), and I figured it's a good time to remind everyone it's finally time to join the Fediverse:

@fribbledom So these are... self-destructing tweets, except they're still stored on Twitter's servers forever but we still pretend that they're not?
@likho @fribbledom Unfortunately it's a weak privacy feature at best because it suffers the same flaw as "Fleets" on Twitter or deleted posts on Mastodon. Once your post propagates to a server you can't control, there's no guarantee that the server will actually delete the post at your request. The ones acting in good faith will, but bad actors will not.
