First, congratulations to Mastodon and this active forum. Second, sorry in advance for the newbie questions that will follow…
I am thinking of a social network through which journalists could 1. confirm informations in real time and 2. spread these informations.
Mastodon, with its invite-based instance capability and its privacy management of toots, would be the perfect tool. I have three questions:
Confidentiality: Journalists should not be able to be traced. Does Mastodon provide an infrastructure strong enough that a third party cannot enter an instance and collect information?
Connection: Is it possible for a third party to easily block access to an instance (I am thinking of journalists in sensitive areas)?
Link with other social networks: Is it possible to build bridges with other social networks in order to have the possibility to post a louse on several platforms at the same time?
Thank you so much in advance!
