New Social media for sexworkers
« on: 29 March 2018, 03:15:47 pm »
Not sure where to put this, can?t see it mentioned anywhere on Saafe yet...

In the wake of SESTA/FOSTA a new Social Media site has been launched: switter.at run by sexworkers for sexworkers. There are some who are thinking there must be an ulterior motive but for now I?m taking it at face value.

Information about it and links are all over Twitter if you want to join!

A lot of us here don't have twitter accounts (me included), would you be so kind as too provide a name for that social media?

thanks,

Yes it's in my original post but you may have missed it as it's very similar to Twitter: type in switter.at (no www.) and it'll come up.

I managed to join and there's actually nothing going on in there, so you're not missing anything.

There are over 17,000 members now, so I can safely say it?s being used as a back up for regular Twitter users.  It is what we make of it, and right now it?s growing hugely.

Many US advertising sites have gone down in the last 24 hrs, as well as reports of websites being summarily taken down.

In view of the fact Twitter may be affected by FOSTA/SESTA switter.at could well become pretty important for US Providers, and anyone who uses Twitter as a marketing tool.

I joined but havent used it.
I saw this tweet today which seems like they are rolling out some sort of verification process similar to AW, which I dont really like the sound of so wont be attempting to use it
twitter. com/msjennalove/status/985540248062124032?s=21

AW is problematic as it is to get verified on for some, so I wonder how this will go down. There is also some talk about reviews being allowed on there, not sure how true it is.

Ill be sticking to Twitter.

Edit: Seems like this is for the *forums* section of Switter, didnt know there was one, and not sure if this will be just for the forums section. It seems there is new rules or changes all the time.

Ill still be sticking to Twitter, works for me :D

What do you guys think of it? Is anyone getting business from switter? I see it more of a social media/experiment for sex workers but not sure about the business side of it...

Let me know your thoughts.

Nope, I've had none but I'm there mostly for back up should Twitter no longer be an option. I could be more active there tbh but I'm not really feeling switter atm, it's feels odd and clunky.
 I'm frustrated how I can tweet my toots with an app but not toot my tweets, I keep tweeting not tooting. I'm not sure clients have migrated there like providers have, I'm mostly seeing others providers so it may be some time before bookings start appearing imo.
(I do like the word toot/tooting though)
