App.net was launched last year, and it was a created as a Twitter alternative for companies and organizations who want a private social networking solution. The App.net social networking service is no longer just for paying members. Earlier this week, they launched a free tier.
Free accounts can follow a maximum of 40 users, have 500MB of available storage, and can upload files up to 10MB. In order to get access, you’ll need an invite from a paid member.
Paid members can earn additional file storage by inviting friends. Both parties will get an extra 100MB if the invited member follows at least 5 other accounts, and the invited member authorizes a third-party app.
Do you guys see a need for an alternative to Twitter?
