One overlooked feature I enjoy is knowing that reading a toot or opening an image isn't contributing to some advertising algorithm's dataset on me and my purchasing preferences.

Yeah right ! Before that I always felt like I may being spied on for whatever mouse movement I made.
It feels so good to just ... browse the website normally.

@voxel The lack of tracking-redirect links is a definite plus -- I don't have to actually open a link in order to get a canonical/non-tracking URL.

@voxel wait, why are we sure that's not happening? Someone could be using the data since it's (mostly) public anyway

@xerz @voxel the static data is public but a user’s interactions (e.g. what they click on) are not public , if I understand correctly.
