  3. <p>TL;DR: it’s stupid, it’s often the worse “I have nothing to hide” thing and a (dis-united) state wants to to it. A password is meant to be hidden, even/specially to governments.</p>
  4. <ul>
  5. <li>Do I give you the whole public/private keyring ? (at least 4096 bytes per account)</li>
  6. <li>I cannot, it’s my finger which does the id and the password is by using sequences of my fingers</li>
  7. <li>I have Two Factor Authentification</li>
  8. <li>I use avian carriers for receiving my tweets per packets of 200</li>
  9. <li>Oh, you want one word, here is the first word of the passphrases</li>
  10. <li>Do I give also the accounts where I’m still logged in but forget the password</li>
  11. <li>There is no password, the server is on my computer</li>
  12. </ul>
  13. <h2>Other questions</h2>
  14. <p>What is a social network, is it what’s allowing humans to communicate or more specific thing like Twitter or Facebook</p>
  15. <p>How can you verify that you gave all your social accounts, or even not a fake account which is created just for that (like recycling a _ebook bot)</p>
