Mastodon: Your DMs can be read by the admin(s) on your specific instance.

Twitter: Your DMs can be read by the entire Twitter Corporation.


@tinker I think that's a good point, two minor thoughts:

The reason that Twitter is an issue is that you effectively have no relationship with them. You're probably just a low value content creator, they have a plethora of those. If you were a customer you might have some weight, you're not.

Also DMs can be read by the admins on your instance and the person you're sending it to's instance. You have to trust all the admins in that set.
