Because it isn't secure at all?

No social media is secure. That's kind of the point of social media.

And Twitter is somehow safer?

Obviously not.

If you're saying this because Snowden said wait he said on Twitter, I'm sorry but I wouldn't know. Not because I didn't try to read the article, I did, but because my custom DNS flagged cointelegraph.com as being malignant and blocked it. True story.

Edit: cointelegraph, not "cointelegram."

It's a fearmongering website design to scare people into buying crypto.

Their articles that aren't about crypto get spammed to social media a lot. It's to get traffic on their site and hope they can hook some.

While I can't recommend this site for general news, the article in question is pretty well written.

Cointelegraph might not be for someone who is very anti-crypto, but it's a legit website with well researched articles, not a source of malware/scams/autogenerated spam.

Their custom DNS is very ant-crypto. Janet Yellen is the personal resolver.

why does security matter?
