10 Best Twitter Alternatives Apps
As we know, there are many Social Networks apps that each of them has its benefits and restrictions. Also, many of these Social networks are similar, and users may get confused to choose between one of these Apps and Social Networks. Each of these social networks competes with each other and Twitter is also present in this competition, as we mentioned at the beginning of the article, we are going to introduce you to 10 of the best alternatives to Twitter and then check them; these alternative apps are:
- Substack Notes
Now let’s check each of mentioned Apps and Social Networks.
01 – Substack Notes
Our first and closest Twitter Alternative app is Substack Note. This Social Network launched on April 5th, 2023, and was warmly welcomed. Substack Notes has a similar UI and functionality to Twitter, but it has some differences too; first, Substack Notes is not Free to use, and Subscribers (users) should pay to read the other subscribers’ content, but it is a good feature because, unlike Twitter, Substack Notes has no Ads on it. The second difference is that Subscribers don’t see any sort of Trolls, Negativities, or Doom Scroll; in other words, Substack Notes has a more gentle and quiet environment and allows you to have an enjoyable experience. Substack Notes developed based on this slogan that Social Networks should be fun and enjoyable not frightening. If you are interested in Substack Notes, you can access it from Substack Notes Website and Mobile App (IOS & Android).
02 – Post
Post has a similar slogan to Substack Notes and wants to give you an enjoyable experience of using Social Networks. Post launched by Noam Bardin (former Waze CEO) in late 2022, and has a similar environment to Substack Notes, but it’s Free to use. You can Sign-Up by your Google Account or Twitter Account, but unfortunately, it hasn’t Mobile App, and IOS/Android users only can access this social network by their Browser. For more information, you can visit the Post website.
03 – Aether
Somehow, Aether is a mix of Discord and Mastodon (we will introduce both of them to you a little later), but it has some interesting features. These features are:
- Transparent Moderation
- Electing Moderators
- Short-term storage of information
Now let’s check these features.
Need to know that there is no main server in Aether and each user is a kind of server for itself; this means your data is more private on the internet, and also safer. Because of this feature, you can make sure that Aether CEOs can’t sell your data to Big Companies.
Aether is only available on Windows, macOS, and Linux.
Like any Social Network, Aether has some restrictions for publishing content, and if your content is harmful (based on Moderator’s opinion), it will delete, and because of Transparent Moderation features, all the users can see the reasons for deleting that post.
As we mentioned earlier, Moderators can delete harmful content, and they must state their reasons for deleting the desired post; but what happens if users don’t like the specific Moderator? They can elect another one! With this amazing feature, users can elect their Moderator; on the other side, Electing Moderators feature gives a free and enjoyable experience of using a Social Network to its users.
Short-Time storage of information
In the Aether, you have access to only the past 6 months’ published posts; in other words, published posts will be deleted automatically after 6 months.
