Hey people any idea on how to keep in touch with somebody that is planning to stay a while in China? Im not a big fan of WeChat tbh neither do I want this person to take any unnecessary risks. WhatsApp is banned. Major platforms are banned. I don't want this person to raise suspicious and I certainly want to avoid troubles with the Political Police :/
@adidal Email seems the obvious answer.
@mattskala are services like qq.com authorised to communicate with non-mainland mail servers?
@adidal I don't know. I certainly get a lot of email originating from Chinese servers, though, so it seems clear that some kind of connectivity is available. Trying to encrypt messages would likely attract the wrong kind of attention.
wanna avoid twitter as much as possible ? then u gotta try mastodon. u can directly create yourself an account on my instance.
