It's upsetting there's no way to automatically encrypt toot-content and provide your followers with a key.

Then you could have content you want, and wouldn't have to worry about an admin being able to see it.

I guess there's always the issue with moderation, but there could be solutions with reporting decrypting content via a user who had permission etc.


@Eden this kind of encryption is a mess to implement. Either you have the encryption key of your follower and encrypt the message for every one (costly when you have many followers). If your follower have the same decryption key you can't repudiate followers. It's like you have nothing. The only viable solution is broadcast encryption but it is expensive and hard to implement.
