Friends must be free to choose whatever software and service they want

This rant is great!

Dear so-called “social” websites.

Your catchword is “share”, but you don’t want us to share. You want to keep us within your walled gardens. That’s why you’ve been removing RSS links from webpages, hiding them deep on your website, or removed feeds entirely, replacing it with crippled or demented proprietary API. FUCK YOU.

[…] Friends must be free to choose whatever software and service they want.

RSS-Bridge is a great open-source project that enables to subscribe to RSS feeds (other formats are supported too) of some services, that don’t provide RSS feeds, like Twitter, Instagram and a lot more. I currently use it to follow some Telegram channels.
