StatusNet is an open source alternative to Twitter: http://status.net/

The biggest technical difference is that StatusNet is federated and
anyone can run their own StatusNet node (sort of like Diaspora). The
most popular StatusNet node is Identi.ca: https://identi.ca/

The biggest social difference is barely anyone uses StatusNet when
compared to Twitter. If you want to get your message out to thousands
of people, you have to work a lot harder if you're not using Twitter.
