Russian Court Bans Telegram App for refusing to hand over encryption keys.
Commendable they refuse to hand over keys but now no more Telegram in Russia... The issue with #centralization made clear again. Better #federate with #matrix #XMPP

@nextcloud What is even more concerning is that they *could* hand over keys that would decrypt communications...
@nextcloud it’s interesting that apparently there is no central private key (they are distributed) and it’s impossible for Telegram to comply.
@nextcloud Maybe they'll go the LavaBit route: dissappear for a while and then come back stronger then ever whilst pushing for new standards.
who would have thunk a government fond of centralized power would behave this way?
