Statistics Twitter vs Ello

by Volker Weber


I have about 3000 followers on Twitter and Ello. 604 people saw this tweet on Twitter, 36 of them clicked the link. Over 1700 people saw my post on Ello. And while you can force-feed ("promote") your tweet on Twitter, on Ello you only get to see what you want to see.

Ello is nice on many fronts. Clean design, photo handling, no ads.

But I keep coming back to "how will they make (at least) enough money to stay afloat?
"Haven't I taught you anything? What have I always told you? Never trust anything that can think for itself if you can't see where it keeps its brain*?”
* brain being "money" in this case.

It's a frequently asked question and it has been answered many times.

All answers are replies, but not all replies are answers.

Löscht du immer noch fast alle Posts auf Twitter?
Auf Ello fährst du da einen anderen Ansatz, oder?

Gibt es dadurch vielleicht eine andere Qualität bei den Followern?
(Abgesehen davon gibt es viel mehr Fake/bot/Spam-Follower bei Twitter.)

Ja. bei Twitter habe ich immer << 100 Tweets. Meistens nur zwei Dutzend.

Ello ist vollkommen anders als Twitter (oder Facebook). Viel sanfter.
