FYI: there are alternatives to Zoom! if you want something that's relatively good privacy-wise, check out Jitsi (@jitsinews). I've used it a bunch and the connectivity/sound/vid quality has been consistently good. it's also super easy to start a call. also also, free.

For those looking for a free, open source video conferencing tool
I tried https://t.co/ia5I7mXBE5 worked GREAT!
Super easy to create a room (no login needed), great sound/video, chatroom, sharing screen, as well as muting everyone possible hehe
thx @jitsinews ! 👍

I'm a big fan of open source and free software. I've used @jitsinews to create a simple way to set up sing arounds https://t.co/xMndeKB0Dy so for you folk types and shanty singers . Ditch zoom, and embrace freedom.

I just did a 20 person conference with @jitsinews and it was remarkably easy & performant. The app is fast and freely-licensed, handles screen-sharing better than any other app I've used, and with 20 people in there, no problems.
Try it out: https://t.co/P9h3q9QVJH

hey y'all, Jitsi (@jitsinews) is an open source online meeting alternative and pretty easy for students to access
Just in case, like me, your university is encouraging a shift online

I like Zoom, which is simple and just works. Plus the company is making it free to K-12 schools.https://t.co/KtmW61lg8q

just tried out #zoom alternative @jitsinews and it was a breath of fresh air – end to end encryption, open source, dirt simple to start, and a full feature set – heads above #hangouts and any other conference tool. https://t.co/KY5ybtsVq9

I've just installed @jitsinews server during my lunch break. It is so awesome and easy. Just followed the quick installation guide and it worked! Thanks for this great #opensource tool! This is a real alternative for all using google meet or zoom at the moment!

This #WorkFromHome trend confirms that there are plenty of good tools (I discovered @jitsinews yesterday – awesomely simple) for remote meeting. And there's a consensus to confirm that @zoom_us is the worst one, right? https://t.co/iCYvwRn58n

If you are an individual who doesn’t want to pay $15/month for your #stayinside virtual gathering of 3 or more people, then @jitsinews is for you. Easy to use and nothing to install. #coronavirus https://t.co/FpnfvHvYUC

Our family has been doing regular checkins using the super accessible @coronadenktank – https://t.co/zGFbdvSRDF
It's a wrapper around @jitsinews which allows easy setup and sharing of a videochat environment. I believe it will be translated in multiple languages soon. pic.twitter.com/DkvjWcFHyv

Amid all the web-based meetings, screen sharing, etc. I've come across https://t.co/t0nPKkco44. It seems so entirely elegant and easy to use that I'm actually suspicious of the downside. Pros/Cons? @jitsinews

Shout-out to @jitsinews for providing such an incredible, simple, reliable, free and open source tool!
Installed it on a 5$ @digitalocean droplet and it works perfectly!
If someone needs help setting their own server just ask away!

I've done a few test runs now, and I'm really happy with the platform so far. Super easy to use, and did I mention it's FREE?

19 persons on our @jitsinews meeting – stable as long as we don't all have video…
