Musk’s takeover of Twitter has caused many users to switch to other platforms.
After taking Twitter Inc private for $44 billion, Elon Musk began making changes to the social media platform that annoyed some users, forcing them to look for alternatives.
Changes include Musk’s decision to charge a fee for user verification, as well as his views on moderating content.
Here are some platforms that are alternatives to Twitter:
Released in 2016, Mastodon is an open-source decentralized social network software, with many features similar to Twitter.
It’s ad-free, has 500 character limit, and custom emoji.
CEO Eugene Rochko said Monday that Mastodon has more than one million monthly active users and has added nearly half a million users since October 27.
Cohost is an ad-free social media platform. The posts on the forum fall on a vertically oriented timeline, just like Twitter.
The company said it will charge “a few dollars a month” and will soon accept tipping and sell subscriptions.
Founded by former US President Donald Trump, Truth Social is a platform favored by conservatives and was recently launched on iOS by Apple Inc and Android by Google.
Truth Social is only available to users in the United States.

It is a self-styled “popular social network” that is available on the Apple App Store and on Android.
The platform allows users to target an audience to improve engagement in posts and says users can find experts on discussion topics.
Nashville-based Parler, who has agreed to sell himself to rapper formerly known as Kanye West, is popular with American conservatives.
Established in 2018, Parler’s approach to content management has made it popular with users who disagree with Meta Platform Inc’s Facebook and Twitter policies.
Tumblr, a social networking website launched in 2007, allows users to post long blog-style content with multimedia elements such as images and GIFs.
It also allows users to chat with each other in the same way as Twitter’s direct messaging feature.
The platform that hosts live voice chat rooms gained popularity during the pandemic.
The app allows users to chat with people from all over the world in what it calls ‘rooms’, where anyone can start a voice chat room and discuss topics of interest.
The invite-only system is not followed for users to access the platform.
