    It does everything I want to do from Facebook and Twitter and it doesn't censor people.

    they charge money to see posts that were posted by premium members.. they have none of the features that Facebook has.. literally the only thing it has at this point in time, is a main feed wall to share posts, that's it.

    Great ethics and policies. All software should be open source. People get paid to make content and it's scaled

    It's similar to the old Facebook, which means it's simpler and without advertisements. Unfortunately, not very popular in Western Europe.

    Because it has tiny bit more respect to privacy than FaceBook.

    VK might be a tad bit more private than Facebook, but the biggest benefit is being able to download files and see profiles/posts without an account.

    Twitter vs Facebook opinions
    This alternative is disputed. Twitter is still a legitimate alternative to Facebook, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    Elon Musk owns it now, so it should be improved hopefully.

    Because it doesn't collect data about my place of birth, school, and besides, I can enter a nickname and it's OK too. I am also happy about the Twitter Lite version on google store

    Facebook allows for long-form posts that can span paragraphs, while Twitter is only capable of recording fragments of thought.

    Twitter, like Facebook is a censorship platform that will ban your account for minor offenses. They cover the truth and allow lies and misinformation.

    short tweets, but you can also use twitlonger to expand them beyond 280 characters. also isn't a privacy trap
