    If I understood this correct from my interpretation of the dutch server description this is an Instance for dutch government officials.

    At least Germany also has such a mastodon instance too for quite a while now. So people on mastodon know that an account there is officially a government account. The BSI (German Office for cyber security) and other offices post there.

    This is not an Instance for “normal people” to register on.

      Yeah, this works great for the “speaking officially” context.

      I’ve always imagined federation would allow service providers to own their communication channels. Municipalities, state agencies, etc.

      This can make it so much more secure for governments than Twitter, it also removes Elon or whoever from being able to bias algorithms in favour of his favourites.

      I really think this is going to be the standard for companies and governments
