It’s not digital rights, it’s human rights in the digital/networked age.

Trying out pinafore.social – a Mastodon web client* with a focus on accessibility – after a recommendation by @laura and it’s a beautiful, simple app.

* Progressive Web App & open source; all data is transferred between the client and your instance.
