App.net today announced new pricing options. First off, there’s a new $5 per month member plan. Secondly, and more importantly for existing members, the current price has dropped from $50 per year to $36 per year.
Interesting timing for App.net. Just as the initial buzz and user adoption somewhat slowed down, they’re coming out with a lower annual fee and a more convenient monthly plan. More details are available over at the App.net blog.
Clearly now is the right moment for Twitter-like services. I’m on App.net, but I’m also keeping an eye on Tent.
