Signal Fails

This isn’t a how-to guide on the best practices for using Signal in organizing, rather it’s a call to minimize the amount that electronic communication – whether Signal or some other app – is used. It highlights some of the limits of Signal and the potential risks overreliance may introduce. To be sure Signal should be prioritized over unencrypted text messages and platforms like Facebook, but this text is correct to call out the importance of face-to-face organizing and the limits of digital platforms.
