Ever since Elon Musk has taken charge of Twitter, he has fired around 7500 employees. Amongst these employees are DeVaris Brown and Alphonzo Trell who have now decided to launch a new app named “Spill” to give competition to Twitter.
The app is a platform to participate in realtime conversation where users can hold online/offline tea parties and post their “spills.”
The name of the platform seems to be inspired from the phrase “spill the tea” where you want a person to share a piece of news or information with you.
Very much like Twitter where users share their tweets, “Spill” also allow users to share their realtime conversations in the form of “Spills. The tea parties, however, can be held online or offline (in real world) according to the users’ convenience.
The creators of the app, Brown and Terrel, elaborate that Spill is going to be different from other major social media apps like TikTok and Twitter as it is more inclined towards minorities and other diverse communities. This aspect is mainly missing in many mainstream social media platforms.
Terrel said, “I think this is really a platform issue. Even before I left Twitter, over the last several months, I was just talking to Black female creators, talking to Black queer creators and I’m like, ‘How do you make your money? Is any platform supporting you? Does the idea of Spill interest you?”
As of now, no information has been shared about Spill’s monetization methods and platform split.
