    Just out of curiosity, what keeps you from using @appdotnet as a fulltime replacement of twitter? Price, lack of active users, design, lack of good apps or features?

      @fabs my friends are on twitter. It’s that simple.

        @fabs anything of value I post to twitter I post here as well. I want to see ADN succeed.

            @mattro I agree and that's how I am using it right now. The lack of interaction feels a bit sad and empty but like you I hope it succeeds.

              @fabs Nothing. I tend to use them for different things these days. App.net is more technical stuff, Twitter is the more general stuff. However ADN is probably where I post more these days.

                @fabs the community is pretty much all devs. So lack of diversity. That being said that fact makes it nice at times.

                    @seawolff interesting to know, it will be nice to see other type of users as well, maybe the guys at @adn need to work harder on this!

                      @fabs I agree. However one thing that is nice is ADN users seem to have the desire to meet in real life for drinks.

                        @seawolff ah nice, didn't know about this, definitely cool!

                          @sw nice, I have a few people saying this, unf. not many designers seem to be interested in ADN right now, it might become more interesting once power users and big bloggers join the scene.

                            @jackalstudio I agree, maybe a bit quieter as well for now.

                              @fabs lack of users, specifically… my friends aren't on it.

                                @masukomi true, then convince them to be here :P

                                  @fabs this might be a better place for this conversation (from twitter) "the masses" won't move here. It's a niche product for early-adopters. The masses won't even join Twitter, their friends are already on Facebook - that's what ADN doesn't understand
