Because I’m young and hip, I signed up for app.net. It’s like Twitter, except you have to pay for it. The idea is that if you pay, you are the customer instead of the product, which (the theory dictates) gets rid of annoying advertising and selling your personal information.
I found another great innovation in app.net as well; compare these two, first Twitter:
and then app.net:
See the difference? Let’s zoom in and highlight important bits:
Yup, that’s true! app.net allows you to post updates of 256 characters instead of the minuscule 140 characters allowed by Twitter. To put that into context, it is more than 80% more characters, proving app.net is 80% better than Twitter. It is also 116 characters or enough to write “plop” 19 times including correct punctuation and spacing. Your toilet updates are gonna be 19 plops better!
I project that soon app.net will be as well-visited as Google+, where nerds can rage among themselves without any real people interfering with their empty lives! Yay, technology!
