Confused about the tiff between the GoI and Twitter/Whatsapp? Thinking of picking a side?
Well, you shouldn’t worry about it; because doesn’t matter which one you pick, or which one of them “wins”, you will be on the losing side.
Twitter/Whatsapp care as much about your privacy as the government does about your freedom.
Rather, think of this as an opportunity to finally push yourself to learn about privacy tools that we are going to need more than ever over the coming years.
If you have time, do spare some of it to learn about some of these.
