It's irrelevant opinion, they both backdoor to the NSA. You'd be more private communicating with 2 tins and some string.
@sobeyharker_twitter Firstly, you need to sort out your subreddit. I get that you have a busy schedule, which is exactly why /u/LillyKitteh asked you to mod her and /u/hypertextpp a while back. You need a public face.
Secondly, set up a PGP system for private comms rather than trying to manage people with a million different programs and methods. If someone doesn't recognise the value of GnuPGP and the fact that math and system hasn't been cracked for 25 years despite attempts to do so by GCHQ and NSA, they aren't worth having onboard. I get that they might be wary of Gitter, but PGP is solid security, and you can be damn sure we'd hear about it if it wasn't. It only took about an hour for the leaders to set up this system.
