Musk likes the letter X :
Musk likes the letter X—he named his space engineering company SpaceX and his AI company xAI, and when he was at PayPal, Musk unsuccessfully tried to have the company renamed to X-PayPal and include an X in the logo. In October, Musk tweeted that “Buying Twitter is an accelerant to creating X, the everything app.” This idea, often referred to as a super app—similar to China’s WeChat or Southeast Asia’s Grab—could include social networking, payments, finance, and other functions in one central app. In May 2022, Musk discussed the super app idea on technology industry podcast All-In, saying that a super app could be made starting with Twitter or from scratch, but either way “this thing needs to exist.”
Twitter Alternatives to Use In 2023 :
Musk had previously come under fire after acquiring Twitter for laying off around 80% of the company’s employees, reinstating once-restricted profiles and tweeting conspiracy theories. Musk’s controversial leadership of the site has left some users in search of another text-based social media platform.
A Safe Social Network for Teens: Amino
Amino is similar to Mastodon in that it enables users to make and moderate communities centered around specific topics. Most communities have stricter guidelines than X, which is good because the user base tends to be on the younger side.
Community moderators can create polls, quizzes, and other neat interactive content. Amino also facilitates voice chat and “screening rooms” where you can watch videos with other users. The platform prioritizes anonymity, and you can use different handles in different communities.
Bluesky is similar to Twitter as users can share photo updates and short texts or reply and share other people’s posts.
Bluesky will be different from other social media apps because it will be a decentralized system, which means people can build their own communities and apps within it. There is no individual to create rules for the entire social media platform.
Mastodon is a decentralized alternative to Twitter. It’s better than Twitter in many ways. The entire social media network consists of different servers located around the world, each of them hosting an instance that caters to a particular audience.
The platform plays host to a variety of good deeds just waiting to happen. You can find petitions related to civil rights, animal rights, social equality, environment-saving, and a lot more.
On this social website, you simply have to click to sign the petition, and one of the website’s sponsors will donate an amount in your name. You can also take different webinars related to social activism on this site to learn to help people around you.
Defined as a “visual conversation at the speed of culture,” Spill was founded by Alphonzo “Phonz” Terrell and DeVaris Brown and launched in January. Both Terrell and Brown were former Twitter employees, with Terrell previously serving as Twitter’s global head of social and editorial prior to Musk’s layoffs. The platform aims to “cater to culture drivers who frequently set new trends yet routinely get overlooked and under-compensated,” Terrell previously tweeted. “Yes, we mean Black creators, queer creators, and a variety of influential voices outside the U.S.” Ahead of its launch, Spill had nearly 20,000 users on its waitlist in December 2022.
