DevRant is a more aggressive Dev Twitter where people can post shit without getting cancelled.

    This community feels a hell of a lot more 'organic' and 'genuine' than twitter... also even when people are rude to each other here... they're still 1000x nicer than twitter.

    you can still get a big fat kick if you go trashing this place with spam, ads and whatnot. Also, mean insults aren't really welcome here as well.

    Asking for ++ is the straightest route to /dev/null

    so it's not like posting shit will not get you canceled here. You CAN post shit. Just not the annoying kind

    @N00bPancakes This.

    Humans didn't get so far because they said "excuse me dearest greg, do you want to kill a mammoth with me?", they said "oooh ugh ahh oh" and in my humble opinion that's beautiful.

    Twitter is that shisha lounge party where you have to take 5 hours in your bathroom to get ready for 2 hours of just looking good.

    Devrant is a bar. You visit it 8 pm after work. You smell, want to get drunk and you just want to ramble monologues. But at least someone should listen, no matter if they answer. About 4 am you decide to take one last shot to leave in 2 hours. For work.

    Something something Dunbar's number and related social psychology.

    I'd say that description is more accurate for Blind, honestly.

    Well, I joined devRant just today and the community feels really nice. Strong opinions exist but hey, at least no one's judging. I'm already on board with devRant being more organic. I think Twitter is used to build your network among the communities. Is there a similar use case here on devRant?

    We're mostly anonymous, because the things we say here aren't good for career longevity.

    Wrong. You actually can be cancelled pretty easily here. Except almost no one tries to do that

    @ayushjn downvoting system. Get a few "spam" downvotes and downvoted posts and comments become invisible to everyone except you. If you sychronize with several users you can downvote someone into invisibility.

    Twitter is too fast for me. If you don't look at it for a day. There are a bajillion things to catch up to. Even people interact more frequently on average there. This is kinda a chill place. I can come after 2 days and it feels like home.

    @3rdWorldPoison yeah, Twitter needs slow mode as here.

    @SortOfTested I checked out Blind and my initial impression was not good. Should I continue?
