The #OnlineSafetyBill means:

(1) The Home Secretary decides what content FB and Twitter must remove, and how;

(2) Companies must be able to read your private messages

(3) Services that don’t comply get banned from App Stores, blocked on ISPs

Hello, state direction of Facebook, and Twitter over what stays up, what gets deleted, and how they find it.

And hello, blocking of services and apps.

How will #reddit, #matrix, #signal, #telegram be treated?

It is impossible to see some of these services being able to comply.

And where will #mastodon fit in? Will the network subject itself to content scanning and removal, or just get blocked online and removed from App stores as “unsafe”?
