The issue


Actually Twitter is profiting from the tweets and the content you share and create. Twitter has control and power on which tweets gets attraction trhough the algorithm.

“Nowadays by using the twitter platforms there is no monetization scheme behind your own audience, if you switch to another platform you have to start from start” Kulechov stated

Stani Kulechov told decrypt, That content creators should have sense of ownerships on their audiences, where content creators can build new user experiences based on chain social graph and data available to content creators.
