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 Its not like Telegram have a good encryption in the first place. So why the Russians want the encryption key?
@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 i really like Conversations with OMEMO by default - a decentralization/federation like mastodon and nextcloud, but you know it ;)
@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?
Generalistic and moderated instance. All opinions are welcome, but hate speeches are prohibited. Users who don't respect rules will be silenced or suspended, depending on the violation severity.
