Your true friends are the ones who install your obscure messenger app just to speak to you
@djabadu Your true friends are the ones who accept your breast cup preference. 🍆💦
xmpp isn't obscure 😋
@excecate woa woa, who says I'm talking XMPP here?
my not good friends complain about me only using xmpp
my failing friends cripple xmpp to volunteer less information
my good friends value me rightly
.. pix-art messenger makes xmpp adoption easier on android and it looks better than conversations
@excecate Most people I know hate technology and the idea of another app on their phone is out of the question for them. I get it tbh. I've convinced a lot of people to use Signal (it seems the easiest to convince people with) and only 2 people to use XMPP.
to take it to the next level i buy them a conversations license
thanks to pix messenger i don't now
yeah it's an uphill battle but i won't use google services and my android root so apps for little girl mentality simply won't work. win. signal requires sms number OF a phone to work. yeah, that can be circumvented.
3 choices is enough.
LITMUS TEST is best well in advance
@excecate Signal is simple and seems extremely secure, but I really want them to implement e-mail confirmation instead of needing a phone number. Also it's centralized, so there's always a possibility of it being bought out which isn't fantastic.
Conversations (and forks) is nice but nearly every XMPP client on desktop I've used has been awful (yes, I have tried Gajim).
psi plus project? not pretty but omemo works
@djabadu What about those who install what appear to be pretty much "mainstream" messenger apps just to talk to those who refuse to use the obscure ones?
@JigmeDatse I basically have a choice of using whatsapp or keeping in contact with basically nobody
@djabadu very tired here, and read that as "Your turtle friends are..."
Oddly enough, that didn't make a lot of sense. 🐢
@dadegroot I'd love a turtle friend!
@djabadu hello Djabadu. Nice to meet you.
@djabadu Guess I alienated one last year then
@djabadu theres nothing quite like being an IM nerd with one IM nerd friend and tons of IMs with one contact on them
@djabadu you’re right!
@djabadu and real friends invite you to facebook events via screenshots of the details
@arcalinea they should also use obscure social media for you benefit :D
@djabadu Bonus points for sending screenshots of facebook events on obscure social media apps
