FWIW you might be able to enjoy the Fediverse via a Friendica server (which also interacts with Twitter) if your desktop twitter client isn't hardwired, though likelier to find desktop client/s that suits down amongst joinmastodon.org/apps or just using web-interface. Best wishes anyway

The fact that it locks you into using their servers, does not distribute on F-Droid (only Google Play OR an APK with an insecure update mechanism), and has a completely closed-source "abusive message filter" module server side, that could functionally be used for censorship, storing messages for future decryption, or any other number of nefarious purposes - we have no idea since it's not open source (https://github.com/signalapp/Signal-Server/blob/main/.gitmod...).
Additionally, you cannot distribute branded forks or Signal, and if you do fork it, your fork is not allowed to connect to Signal's "official" OWS (open whisper systems) servers - hostility to federation should be viewed with prejudice and suspicion at the very least, it suggests a vested interest in a single point of failure (or control), which goes against user interests.

"The Signal client is built non-reproducibly, so you actually don't know whether it's running the source code available on Github."

It’s actually the signal server that isn’t reproducible because of the abusive message filter that’s in a private repository. It’s clear as day here: https://github.com/signalapp/Signal-Server

So phone numbers are not part of group metadata and can’t be accessed directly even if someone gets access to the groups server. However, because (as far as I know) the server still has a 1:1 mapping of UUID <-> phone number that it knows, then if the malicious actor has access to the main Signal server, they’d be able to access the phone numbers of members as well.

What database used by Signal

DyanmoDB maybe according to their tests? Their server infrastructure is AWS centric so it makes sense they would use an AWS managed database for persistent storage.5 projects | /r/signal | 28 Nov 2022
