    While true, App.net was the exact opposite of Ello in terms of the hip/new/cool quotient. App.net was to Twitter what Android is to Apple (imho) - a less-cool, if perhaps smarter alternative that appeals to a certain techy/geeky person

    Ello has the possibility of answering the backlash against Facebook that has been building for years- and answering it in a hip cooler way rather than an intellectual "better on specs" way, which is what I feel App.net tried to do
