FLOSS #SHOUTOUT CODE #TWISTER FASTER-THAN-LIGHT #QFNM #TWITTER-LIKE #OTB


In a post-Snowden world where NSA surveillance has been exposed as ubiquitous, one man decided to invent a networking system akin to Twitter, but with one key difference: It would be surveillance-proof and completely decentralized. Meet ‘Twister.’

Miguel Freitas was always a big Twitter fan – especially as it drummed out information on the June mass protests in his native Brazil at a time when no competent up-to-the-minute source existed locally.

But even though Twitter to him symbolized what decentralized media is, Freitas, in an interview with Wired magazine, opened up about his feelings that a world in which the NSA apparently has its nose in every conceivable internet communication would soon need new avenues for information exchange. Ten years of people blissfully communicating their daily routines and locations to Facebook, Twitter and other services have led to large segments of society seeking a newer, upgraded kind of networking, Freitas says.

Using his programming skills, Freitas created an open-source Twitter-like service run on a Bitcoin platform. Doing so is key to the technology; Twister allows its users to share posts without them being later stored in one place or server. Its decentralized nature means that it cannot be targeted and erased by a third party. Nor will that party be able to tell if a user is online, what their IP address is and who they follow.

The test version Freitas produced with collaborator Lucas Leal runs on Android, Apple OSX and Linux, and works off a user-run server, or one run by someone the user trusts. Unlike Twitter, Twister’s peer-to-peer architecture works without a central server.

“Twister is a microblogging peer-to-peer platform, that is, it is a distributed system like bittorrent or similar file sharing technologies. Being completely decentralized means that no one is able to shut it down, as there is no single point to attack. The system is also designed so it cannot be censored, freedom of speech cannot be taken from you. And because the cryptography is employed end-to-end, no entity is able to spy on your communications,” Freitas explains on Twister’s homepage.
