We're very happy to see #EUvoice https://social.network.europa.eu/explore, a #Mastodon instance run for the #EU by the European Commission (@EC_DIGIT + @EDPS). Hopefully it will grow and improve fast. The sooner ResPublicae.eu becomes redundant, the better.
Given the changed circumstances, there's no longer a need to consider offering local accounts in the future. The frontpage has been updated accordingly.
This service is experimental and offered without promises of permanence.
A long-term #digitalpreservation service for the EU's communication on social media would be useful, but we're not such a service. (A suitable institutional home would need to be found.)
The overall database we can share in #CC0 but no single license on the text and media would be available.
Some data scrubbing might also be needed if #Mastodon doesn't yet provide a native way to provide dumps of public-only information.
A Mastodon forum for the discussion of European Union matters. Not run by the EU.
