It will be online in six to eight weeks.
Future users can now reserve their nickname on spill-app and receive updates before the official launch.
Fair compensation for creators
There will be a live news feed allowing users to post content, as well as a tool called "tea parties", offering the possibility of creating events.
With Spill, the two founders wish to highlight the remuneration of creators, especially from minorities.
They observed that black women, queer people and other communities have driven new trends on platforms like Twitter and TikTok, without necessarily being rewarded for it.
Spill will use blockchain technology to determine how posts go viral and compensate creators accordingly, explains BFM TV.
Terrell was global head of the social and editorial section of Twitter.
He was among those fired when Elon Musk took over Twitter.
Brown had already left the American social network two years ago where he was working on machine learning.
