According to this article, "Post News, a Twitter alternative run by the former Waze CEO Noam Bardin, is shutting down. Bardin says the platform 'is not growing fast enough.'" It was backed by venture capitalists Andreesen-Horowitz. It was "a social platform that also offers users ad-free access to paywalled content from publishers such as Fortune, Business Insider, Wired, The Boston Globe, and others." What they missed, I think, is that people not only want to read, they want to share, but they only place users could share was on Post News itself; otherwise, you'd just be sharing a paywall, and nobody wants that.
