What is Post.news, the anti-Twitter dedicated to journalism and news

Advertisement

It’s called Post.news and it’s yet another new social network that has become fashionable now that quite a few people are wondering if it’s time to get away from Twitter. Post.news, however, is quite similar in appearance and functions to the social network now owned by Elon Musk, were it not for the fact that its focus is oriented towards sharing and buying news.

 

It was founded by former Waze CEO Noam Bardin , and launched in a hurry after some pretty fruitful early funding rounds. The social network has convinced – among others – Andreessen Horowitz’s A16z , a fund that has its hands in all the ‘big news’ of tech in recent years, including social networks such as Clubhouse and the so-called Web3.0.

Currently you can not subscribe to Post.news yet. There is only one site where you can sign up for a waiting list. Users will receive an alert as soon as it is possible to download the official application of the social network. The beta has already been downloaded by a few tens of thousands of users. Does it remind you of anything? It is the ‘exclusivity’ strategy chosen by Clubhouse. At first it went great, but then the social network dedicated to voice chats quickly lost traction. Who knows if Post.news will have better luck.

Interestingly, Post.news has the fact that it is a social network dedicated to information. Users can decide to purchase access to individual newspaper articles . Ideally tomorrow they will be able to read the premium content of the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, without necessarily having to pay for a subscription to the entire newspaper .

 

It seems that the waiting list has already exceeded 200,000 people, but there are many doubts about the success of Post.news. The road of micropayments applied to publishing has already been attempted numerous times, and always without great success.
