Definition: Secure ScuttleButt

An invitation-only social media system that sends encrypted messages to followers. Devoid of spam, threats and other harassment, Secure ScuttleButt (SSB) was created by Dominic Tarr in 2014, who lived on a sailboat with intermittent Internet access. Messages are appended to the previous message cryptographically, and SSB users only receive messages from people they follow. See social media.
