 I think they're having teething problems at least I hope that's what it is.

I think it's taken them aback that such huge numbers have joined and there's a few things they haven't thought through.

There's Switter, then there's the forum. They have suspended asking for verification for the forum but you need to be a switter member to join it.

What I initially understood was that the forum was for sex workers only (hence verification needed) however I joined, had a quick glance and it didn't seem to be the case.

The other thing that's worrying is it's more like a forum mentality on the main Switter Platform, seems like a lot of hobbyists have joined and guys giving out mini reviews on there.

A lot are against reviews as in the US there was such a toxic culture with hobbyists dictating terms on sites like TER and what I understood from Switter initially was that it would be set up without a review culture and that this was what the majority wanted.

Like I said hopefully teething problems and they will sort this all out.

As to getting business from there I think it's a bit too soon to expect that especially in the UK. It seems US ladies are getting some but of course I can't verify that.

I'm not sure if I can put this link here but here's a short article about Switter and how they have been doing so far (including being kicked off Cloudflare  :o )

Another update from Assembly4, who are behind Switter:

Switter hit 100,000 users :)
Assembly4 are also starting a new advertising platform for sex workers, called Tryst: https://tryst.at/sign_up

Why would assembly four who are behind switter make another advertising platform??? Either they have zero marketing skills or there's divisions inside the platform and none of the things are good news. It's like adultwork owners having a fight a creating "another platform". Confusing.

Switter is similar to Twitter. It's a free social media platform with its limitations when comes to advertising.
I think that Tryst will me more like a proper directory and you'll have to pay to advertise.
Creating and running Switter takes a lot of work and time and these 3 people behind it are doing it all for free.
So Tryst will be a source of income for them as well as a proper advertising platform for sex workers.
That's how I see it.
I have a lot of respect for them for being so proactive and helping the community and it's sad really that out of all 100,000 Switter users, less than 100 people (less than 0.1%  :() are donating to their Patreon and LiberaPay.
