Is Reddit the New Twitter?
If you are familiar with AMAs and nosleep, then you might know a thing or two about Reddit. Since it's debut in 2005, Reddit has grown to be one of the most frequented sites on the web and it also gained a reputation for being one of the snarkiest. With the amount of digital foot traffic that this site has received over the years, Reddit has become one of the top go to's for virality, and to build any business owner's credibility. The question of the hour is why has Reddit become the new Twitter? The answer lies in the numbers.
A High User Rate
As of right now, Reddit has the same amount of users as Twitter. As we all know, Twitter has been stalling lately, because of the amount of algorithm changes, the stock diving, and the bot problem. However with all of this information the most important thing to know is the engagement rate is a lot higher on Reddit than on Twitter, and that is not good for Twitter. It seems that with the new community features that Reddit put in place, it has slowly become a place where a lot of brands want to go to.
