The Sayches platform is an alternative to safely share your thoughts and your present moments whilst also keep your privacy
Censorship is a terrible threat not only because it silences the truth. But also because people censor themselves with the threat looming over their heads. Censorship has become a serious problem, especially on the centralized social media giants like Twitter and Facebook.
Twitter is an interesting case. The platform has become popular largely for its news and ability to post quick updates. This makes it more ominous when they ban users, which has become increasingly common in the last few years. But Twitter is not always the one doing the banning. Sometimes countries ban their citizens from using Twitter.
This has been the case in Nigeria. The president of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, was banned from Twitter. In retaliation, the Nigerian government banned Twitter from Nigeria. The Nigerian government cited the potential threat of a civil war in Southeaster Nigeria from fake news under the popular hashtag, which seeks to end police brutality in Nigeria.
Now, Nigerians have limited access to information concerning current events and trending topics. Especially related to police brutality in their own country. Nigerians could still access the site with a VPN, but most of the population won't be able to do this.
But this isn't just a problem for the Nigerian people. There are other countries that have banned Twitter as well. Iran is another country that has banned access to the site by its citizens. And it looks like India may be following suit as well. This can be problematic because these are countries with large populations and a good share of the user base on Twitter.
With the increasingly limited access to Twitter, not only by people banned from Twitter but also in countries where Twitter is banned, it is becoming more and more important to find a viable alternative to the popular microblogging platform that we have all come to love and loathe.
A new social media platform may be the answer. Sayches.com is a Twitter alternative that encourages freedom of expression without the fear of repercussion. It is currently in beta, but you can join the waitlist to be notified of when the project fully launches.
Sayches is a microblogging social media platform that uses ephemeral content. This means it disappears after 24 hours. This encourages people to post their unfiltered thoughts and feelings and feel secure in the fact that these posts will not last forever.
This is a stark contrast to Twitter, where content can live on the platform forever unless the user manually deletes it. This can give users some peace of mind and knowing that their unfiltered thoughts will not stick around forever to cause a problem for them at some later point in the future.
Sayches has the potential to be a real alternative to Twitter. It can be a wonderful outlet for Nigerians, Indians, Iranians, and anyone else that is affected by the Twitter ban. It can help to make the internet a better place for Everyone by upholding the rights of privacy and unlimited and transparency in any compromises.
Sayches will be a great site for news because content disappears after 24 hours. This means that only the most up-to-date information will be available on the site. It can be something concerning police brutality in Nigeria. Or a funny anecdote from one of your best friends.
Sayches has a great way of discovering new discussions. Users can start a list and start taking part in the discussions. And these lists can be on any topic of their choosing. It could be random thoughts, current events, or personal updates.
