    A better version of what Gab was trying to do. Federation is built into its core, so communities of users can be created, but the Fediverse has you covered. Everyone is linked together so long as they don't break the rules. No censorship, good content, and nice people. Great alternative!

    A great tool to chat like IRC and Discord, but nothing like a traditional social network like Twitter itself.

    Gab caters more to an alt-right audience, and in no way values the speech of its opponents.

    Gab is a solid social network, whereas twitter and facebook censor information Gab does the opposite, it lets the user decide what is relevant to them and effectively does not treat their user base like five year olds.

    Got kicked out recently... no reason why, cannot login, password recovery does not work and won't be able to use the same @ if willing to sign up again because it is "already taken". This looks to me like if my account has been stolen in some way a couple of months ago but I am not able to get it back again since help is just not working. Too bad.

    Not an alternative to Twitter per se, but it allows us to use the same Twitter in a privacy conscious way. Since Twitter still has a lot of good content, we can consider accessing it via Nitter.

    It's a good front-end alternative to Twitter, if you like privacy and such. It's not an alternative service to Twitter, as it still connects to Twitter servers.

      Misskey federated and allows you to host your own service via ActivityPub similar to Mastodon or Pleroma. What Misskey has that others don't is the fully customized dashboards for each instance and the ability to play games and integrate other APIs into your application. The userbase is mostly Japanese but there are more English speaking instances popping up as of late.
