App.net (the new Twitter) has reached its goal with Kickstarter, at half a million dollars

App.net Kickstarter fundraising

Is App.net overcoming twitter? Could this the part like what happened when Facebook overtook Myspace? In my opinion the answer is yes, as the internet has decided to cast its vote in favor by giving App.net 500 grand of fundraising. The differences between Twitter and App.net are very slim and huge at the same time. App.net has offered the internet a paid service which provides you the ability to tweet with up to 256  characters (Twitter is only 140). However, the real game changer is that App.net focuses on its users and not advertisers (you heard me right, no ads!). To me personally I think the added cost is going to hurt users more than having an open idea, but prove me wrong App.net, lets see what your made of.
