The features of Twitter without compromising your ethics
Powered by Mastodon, WMD Social gives you the benefits of Twitter without all the evil. No algorithms or ads to waste your time. Follow anyone across any Mastodon server from a single account and receive their posts in chronological order, and make your corner of the internet a little more like you.
Mastodon puts decision making back in your hands. Each server creates their own rules and regulations, which are enforced locally and not top-down like corporate social media, making it the most flexible in responding to the needs of different groups of people. Join a server with the rules you agree with, or host your own.

"Modern cars are a privacy nightmare."
From Mozilla: "We reviewed 25 car brands in our research and we handed out 25 “dings” for how those companies collect and use data and personal information."
• 84% share or sell your data
• 92% give drivers little to no control over their personal data
• Nissan can collect “sexual activity” & Kia says they collect info about your “sex life”. Others collect genetic characteristics.
