"Mastodon's Founder Says Trump's New Social Network Is Just Mastodon"
"Trump’s social network has 30 days to stop breaking the rules of its software license," Verge reports
@schlink Would be so cool if Mastodon rode this Bitcoin wave as part of a decentralized web upgrade.
@schlink hihihi, naming it "Truth social" is such a lie ! It will not prosper very long, maybe even don't begin ! 😂😂😂
@schlink for a second i thought the subject was new facebook social network! 🤣
i really doubt trump will follow agpl license requirements properly... this should bring on a very interesting legal fight.
@schlink the people who own the Mastodon code base should sue for compliance. This type of problem is common with politicians.
@schlink or else what? Trump is effectively above the law. the guy instigated a coup attempt and faced no consequences. he committed countless crimes while US president, for which he's faced no consequences. he's really going to comply with a software license? he'll drag it out in court forever and starve every organization involved to death
@schlink the Mastodon logo isn't on any error pages I generated when I went there a while ago. Most likely still a work in progress but they should be compliant from the start. They may be worried about hacking and trying to obscure. Not sure. I'll play around there a bit more as I have time.
