But here is what you’ll get:

App.net is a different kind of social platform.
We’re building a real-time social service where users and developers come first, not advertisers.

Our team has spent the last 9 years building social services, developer platforms, mobile applications and more.

We believe that advertising-supported social services are so consistently and inextricably at odds with the interests of users and developers that something must be done.

Help us create the service we all wish existed.

They launched a Kickstarter-type campaign to get this off the ground.

I hate the idea of having to switch tools, but Twitter is in a stalemate and the users worth following increasingly are growing tired of it.
