"Bundestag soll eigene Social-Media-Accounts bekommen
Das deutsche Parlament könnte bald stärker auf Facebook und Twitter stattfinden."
Anstatt diese Datenkraken zu füttern und damit dazu beizutragen, dass Menschen diese nutzen, wäre es mehr als konsequent darauf zu verzichten!
Warum nicht eine freie und offene Alternative wie Mastodon fördern? Eine Ankündigung in dieser Richtugn würde ich mir mal wünschen.
