Uhm, didn't see that coming (totally did):

The Wire messenger changed ownership in July, didn't really notify anyone as per their own privacy policy, and now belongs to a US entity called "Wire Group Holdings":

Not sure how I feel about that (totally do).

@DHeadshot @fribbledom No, if the server is up to date, offline messages, multidevice and encryption work.

Indeed, and this is regardless of #XMPP's many technical merits. This is simple logic: all the aforementioned suspects are funded by “angels” who have made previous successful exits in the very fields of instant messaging. Just what does anyone think they're doing if not trying to pull the same trick again? The naïveté of some people is just amazing. 🙂

> many technical merits.

And “enterprise” usage.

@2342 @fribbledom Yes, that's the time to move to XMPP. Only iOS support is mediocre.
