It's an interesting point you make. Getting engagement isn't easy. You can't just post and think, however good your content is, that people will read it. Engagement needs effort and you need to really read, understand and comment on content. Twitter does make that easy.

I do feel a bit unsure about the censoring of Trump though, even though I am in no way a supporter. Just seems that big corp are making decisions about what is right for us. Now they are locking out the Parler app too which the Trump supporters moved to.

I do like d.buzz as a Twitter alternative on Hive.

Sort:  

Big corporations only care about their business and nothing more. From a business point of view, it might be career suicide or not, who knows? Personally, I'm hoping that after this, people will start realising their Twitter account doesn't belong to them and frankly doesn't hold any value because it is free and very "deleatable". Hopefully this will be enough for people to start looking for alternatives like dbuzz.

However, my issue with Dbuzz is that the posts still show up on my feeds and the usual autovotes come in. I'd prefer a situation where the hive tweets are on a different front-end of sorts, with a level playing field for everyone to grow their account.

It's an interesting point and I do like the thinking. Personally, I think the battle is so hard. There are so many competing platforms at the moment looking at the IM space on blockchain. Uhive, Note etc. It is difficult to see how they grow beyond a niche set of users or those just spamming crap trying to get rewards.

The difficult nut to crack, is rewarding truly good content and encouraging real engagement.

It starts from taking out all the automatic shit from the tweets. All the people that use Twitter and whatnot don't go there because of money, they go there because they want to post shitpost s and don't give a shit about governance. So how about creating a platform that is seemingly unregulated where people can post whatever the hell they want

And are you thinking centralised or decentralised ?

Centralised or decentralized are just name tags tbh. Look at Leo for example; It is centralised but no one's complaining about it 🤷‍♂️. Once you make a solid product that serves it's purpose, no one will care
