If you’re looking to leave Twitter, you may still desire another social media platform to suit your tweeting and meme needs. And you may find it tough to locate an alternative app or site (among the many that are out there) that will fill the bird app’s large shoes.
There are the obvious possibilities like as Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram, but there are some more that you might have not thought of – some that may help you create community, provide a venue for your hot takes and images, and make staying connected with the people that you love most.
We’re just going to say it: This is an absolutely stunning app. If you like to share images, Hive Social is an excellent platform for doing so. However, you are not restricted to photographs: You can also create text and video posts, as well as GIFs and polls. Additionally, you can comment on and repost other people’s posts. Additionally, it has chat and a chronological feed to help you stay connected with friends and family.
Additionally, Hive Social includes a “profile music” option that transports us to return to the era of Myspace and those ubiquitous auto-playing tunes on everyone’s profile. You can customize your profile by adding music and enabling or disabling autoplay.
What is the primary disadvantage? Hive Social is currently only accessible on iOS. They are still developing an Android application.
Really, TikTok? That is correct. It may not be your first choice as a Twitter substitute, as it is more of a lighter video platform, but the program has amassed a sizable user base and excels at community building. You might as well join it now because the small bite-sized viral films for which the app is famous are constantly being reposted on Twitter and Instagram.
TikTok is accessible for free on Android, iOS, and Windows 10.
Discord is unique among the apps on our list in that it is essentially a chat application. However, it is a chat application that allows you to join or create servers (which act as communities). While Discord began as a chat tool for gamers, it has evolved into a platform where you can join communities and discuss or exchange content on a variety of themes. You are also not required to join a public server. If all you want is a private one with a few close pals, that is also possible.
Discord includes a slew of features that make it easy to meet new people and stay in touch, like event hosting (for things like conference calls, streaming movies, and games), voice and video chatting, and even co-listening to music via Spotify. Additionally, GIFs, stickers, and emoticons can be sent.
Discord is available as a web app and as a desktop application for Windows, iOS, Android, Linux, and macOS.
Reddit has existed for a lengthy period of time (since 2005) and was dubbed the “front page of the internet” for a reason. Because, like Twitter, you can use it to stay current on news and join communities (subreddits) to discuss your favorite hobbies, entertainment, sports, or just about anything else.
It’s definitely the greatest platform on our list for recreating the sensation of sliding into a Twitter rabbit hole.
Subreddit communities resemble basic forums in appearance, and they are similar in function: you can post text, photographs, links, and videos in a subreddit. These postings typically attract comments and up or down votes, which determines where your post appears in the stream. If you’re seeking for more in-depth discussions or answers to your pressing problems, Reddit may be the place to go.
Reddit is a free service that may be accessed via the website or via an app for Android or iOS.
