It’s only been little over two weeks since Elon Musk took over ownership of Twitter after purchasing it for a $44 Billion deal.
But in that little time the company shares dropped dramatically, the ‘verified blue tick” option got introduced and quickly ditched, Elon Musk sacked a large amount of the workforce and a number of people including celebrities left the platform.
The future of Twitter is becoming increasingly uncertain and people appear to be looking for somewhere new.
Here are four alternative platforms you can try if you are done with Twitter.
It is a new social media platform built from the ground up by a small team of developers and designers who like sharing things on the internet.
This one is currently in a testing phase. When you sign up you can use an invite code, i you haven’t got one then you will need to with for a coule of days before you can post anything.
There are no ads, no tracking and no algorithm to mess with your timeline.
The co-founder of Twitter, Jack Dorsey is behind this one. It was announced in 2019 but only went into testing phase earlier this year. It is a private beta to join and since Musk took over Twitter the waiting list or Bluesky have gone to over 30,000.
“Bluesky is an initiative to transition the social web from platforms to protocols. You‘ll be an early member of a small team developing and driving large-scale adoption of technologies for open and decentralized public conversation.”
This might just be the best Twitter alternative. Dubbed itself the kinder, smarter social network, Tribel closely resembles Twitter interface and offers. “Tribel is a new and innovative social network that is taking the internet by storm.” Tribel claims it doesn’t harvest user data and “free of hatred and fake news.
Probably one of the best Twitter alternatives, Mastodon has people jumping ship. Search traffic for the Mastodon platform has gone up 400% in November. With familiarly looking pages like Twitter, users will feel like they haven’t left. What’s different is that it is decentralised rather than a singular platform like Twitter. So millions of users spread across independent communities rather than all being in the same place.
Those are the twitter alternatives if you are looking to change platforms. All of these have either an Apple or Android app so make it easy for you to use.
The future of Twitter is uncertain at the moment with some even citing bankruptcy. We will wait to see what happens to Twitter.
