UberMedia has plans to build new social network

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 7:10PM EST

UberMedia, best known for its UberSocial Twitter application for Android BlackBerry and iPhone, could have bigger plans up its sleeves. According to CNN, UberMedia is planning to build a social network that will compete directly with Twitter in the microblogging space. UberMedia hopes to attract users that are frustrated with the limitations of Twitter, like the 140-character limit, or are confused by how the service works. The firm is no stranger to the social network landscape. In fact, it estimates that 11.5% of all tweets sent in March were from an UberMedia product. However, CNN also notes that the social network project could be part of a backup plan in case UberMedia’s relationship with Twitter goes south — as it did briefly in February when Twitter accused the company of violating its terms of service. “Our foremost desire is to continue to innovate on the Twitter platform and bring some more users and usage to Twitter,” Steve Chadima, UberMedia’s marketing chief, said.
