Switzerland's government has taken a step towards a more independent digital presence by creating their own Fediverse server. The server, social.admin.ch, will represent key departments such as:

  • Federal Departments of Foreign Affairs (FDFA)
  • Federal Department of Home Affairs (FDHA)
  • Federal Department of Economic Affairs, Education and Research (EAER)

We can also look forward to updates from Federal Council spokesperson André Simonazzi. This move highlights Switzerland's commitment to open, secure and autonomous communication channels.

Let's hope that more governments follow suit and join the Fediverse. It's essential for government communications to have a reliable platform that isn't reliant on any private American individual or entity. You can read more about it here:
