🤔 VERO is built by a squad of Russian Developers FYI pic.twitter.com/dZsrKp2FHt

I also like how Colin Walker explains it:
Although Vero promises an algorithm free feed and no ads (it will monetise using subscriptions and charges for selling via the platform) I’m not sure that jumping from the frying pan of one silo straight into the as yet unproven fire of another is what we really need right now. It all just sounds too good to be true.
Even if only half of what is true is reported, it is not good. Surely our problem is not Instagram or Facebook, but the model they are built on. At least Mastadon and Micro.blog are offering something different. A more human approach.
