Tooter, an indigenous social network platform to compete with Twitter

Tooter, an indigenous social network platform, has taken India one step further on the path to self-reliance. Like the popular microblogging site Twitter, its user interface and logo are white-blue in color. However, this Indian version of Twitter has not just been launched. Tooter was reportedly launched in June when the Indian government began banning Chinese apps. As we have seen, the Tooter app was released on September 3 in the Play Store. However, after so many days, its presence went viral yesterday and came to the center of netizens’ discussion. Let’s take a look at other things starting from signing up on Tutor.

How to open an account on Tutor

For this you need to install Tooter application from Play Store or go to Tooter’s official website tooter.in. You can sign up by agreeing to the terms of service of Tutter by confirming the password with username, email, password. However, there is no option to sign up with any email ID except Gmail and Yahoo Mail. Tooter is also not yet available in Apple’s App Store.

What can Tutare do

Tutor users will be able to share their opinions on a variety of topics, share photos and videos, read feed posts, follow someone, and communicate with acquaintances or strangers. In fact, you can find almost all the functions of Twitter on Twitter. Twitter posts are referred to as ‘tweets’. Similarly, the dress name of Tutor’s posts is ‘toots’.

Who’s in Tutter?

Heavyweight political figures like Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah, and Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and Yogi Adityanath have been heard to have verified profiles on Tutter. Besides, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party also has an official account in Tutter. Among the celebrities are Virat Kohli, Abhishek Bachchan and Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

Tooter Pro

Tutor is also offering the opportunity to upgrade the profiles of its users. Users will have to spend Rs 1,000 per year to upgrade to the premium version of Tooter Pro. Tooter Pro members can receive verified badges as well as schedule posts, create groups, upload large videos and photos, remove in-feed promotions, and compose and underline text in bold or italic fronts.

Since the banning of one Chinese app after another in India to ensure sovereignty and security, multiple indigenous apps have been launched as their alternative. The number of users is also increasing at a significant rate. Only time will tell how much Tooter, which calls itself Swadeshi Andolan 2.0, will be able to establish itself as an alternative to Twitter.
