The main motivation I had for including the Twitter feed was to make the web page more dynamic and useful with frequently updated information, which wasn't an extra overhead to maintain.Thanks for taking my ranting seriously.I presume we could have our own widget which subscribed in some way to a Twitter feed, perhaps though our own (MQTT) intermediary. Would that be better?Yes - I don't object to the content or the dynamic nature at all. It is only having the user's browser contact an advertising company that bothers me. So if the content is hosted at some eclipse.org site, and fetched from there, then that seems fine. That is what I was getting at with mastodon, which seems (not having done it) to be the easiest path. Looking at https://www.eclipse.org/paho/ now, I see that there are currently third-party reference to platform.twitter.com cdn.syndication.twitter.com www.google-analytics.com I am not an expert on GDPR compliance, but I suspect that people that allow their browsers to load third-party resources would get tracking cookies from at least some of those. I also realize that what the paho page is doing is not unusual.
