Twitter are going to push more censorship by selectively removing tweets. Is there a usable alternative that is not censored, and will likely stay this way?
The two major Twitter alternatives I know today are:
- Facebook - can be used in a Twitter like fashion. I don't know if they censor, but I don't count on them not to do so in the future ... they're just too big and centralized.
- Diaspora - this looks promising long term, but at the moment they're alpha (for a few years now), and they're usability is still not so great.
Are there other Twitter alternatives (micro-blogging platforms) that are actually usable at a practicle level (good UX, performance, looks ... everything that you want in a modern website), are not censoring posts, and are (relatively) not likely to do so in the near future (maybe because they're too small to get noticed)?
A self-hosted solution - i.e a website you need to install somewhere - is not a viable answer. I'm looking for something that is easy for end users who are not tech savvy.
