@gdroid Love seeing the progress on G-Droid and the Mastodon integration is awesome – congratulations!

One important note though: Mastodon is entirely public; there’s nothing private about it. It’s important that we don’t conflate protocols that encourage better social communication methods (and discourage abusive behaviour) with those that mathematically protect privacy. Mastodon is awesome, it’s just not private ;)

Thanks for the flowers.

I would partly disagree with that. One aspect of privacy is the 'right to be forgotten'. While you might decide to share a status today, you might also decide to delete it tomorrow. You should be in control of your data.

Mastodon implements that better than Birdpage, Goggle or Foobook. Especially since you can run your own instance you can certainly control the deletion.

100% public and still respecting your privacy. #mastodon

The Fediverse still doesn't have a generally used client API, so that's not G-Droid's fault. The Mastodon API is the closest thing.

In the glorious future maybe everyone will support the ActivityPub client-to-server protocol, but currently when writing a Fediverse client, the choice is between the Mastodon API (supported by e.g. Mastodon, Pleroma, PeerTube and Pixelfed) and the extended Twitter API (supported by e.g. GNU Social, Friendica and Pleroma).
