I love Bastyon since it allows users to remain completely anonymous, without sharing email addresses or phone numbers, and I really appreciate the encrypted chat for private and secure messages.

It's a growing platform as far as I can see and there are very interesting conversations going on. The good thing is that no one can be banned from the platform, unlike what happens on the main social medias like Youtube or Facebook, where people get silenced for posting "uncomfortable" things.

Here instead the freedom of speech is real and respected.

Terrible! Half of the site are bots, half - conspiracy theorists, nazis and ztards.

Said about Bastyon as an alternative


Bastyon is a great alternative to Twitter since it does not ask users for personal email or phone number and it bypasses the censorship that traditional social medias apply. It is growing fast and I like the idea of a place with real freedom of speech
