Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) have recently been flocking to Truth Social following Elon Musk’s new tiered system on tweet caps.
The system limits the number of tweets unverified users can view, which has caused frustration among many Kenyan users.
KOTs like it because of its focus on free speech and association with former President Donald Trump. The influx of KOT to Truth Social comes with mixed reactions.
Some users have welcomed the new arrivals, while others have expressed concern that the platform is becoming too mainstream.
Let’s wait and see whether Truth Social will be able to maintain its appeal to Kenyan users in the long term.
Why KOTs have opted for Truth Social:
- Frustration with Twitter’s new tweet caps: As mentioned above, Elon Musk’s new tiered system on tweet caps has caused frustration among many Kenyan users. This is because the system limits the number of tweets unverified users can view, making it challenging to keep up with the latest news and conversations.
- The promise of free speech: Truth Social has free speech policies, which appeal to many Kenyan users who have been banned from Twitter for expressing their political views.
- The opportunity to connect with other Kenyans: Truth Social is a relatively new platform, but it has already attracted many Kenyan users. This means that KOT can now connect with other Kenyans on a platform that is specifically for them.
Now you are informed why KOTs have opted for Truth Social. It is still too early to say whether Truth Social will be able to maintain its appeal to Kenyan users in the long term.
However, the platform has made a strong start and will likely remain a popular destination for KOT in the coming months.
