Elon Musk, the owner of Twitter, has threatened to sue the Meta company after yesterday’s introduction of the social network Threads, the new rival of the Twitter social network.
A lawyer representing Twitter has accused Meta in a letter to CEO Mark Zuckerberg of stealing the company’s trade secrets by hiring ex-Twitter employees.
According to foreign reports, this situation makes it clear that the new Threads social network is considered a competitive threat to the Twitter application.
Meta, the parent company of social networks like Facebook, Instagram, etc., has registered 30 million users on its first day for the newly introduced Threads application.
According to Meta Company, the Trades App can be used in more than 100 countries and in more than 30 languages, including Sri Lanka, through smartphones, tablets, computers and other communication devices with Apple’s iOS and Android operating systems.
Facebook founder and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg says Twitter is a ‘friendly’ rival to Threads.
Some users say the new Threads could be the ‘Twitter killer’.
The Twitter social network was bought by Elon Musk last October.
Industry experts say Threads will quickly attract Twitter users who regret the recent changes.
Twitter started charging for Verified Accounts, limiting posts, and limiting the number of posts viewed per day after Elon Musk bought it.
However, Twitter CEO Linda Yaccarino said that Twitter is ‘often imitable’ but it can ‘never be duplicated’.
Threads allow users up to 500 characters per post. It also has many features similar to Twitter.
Meta chief Mark Zuckerberg has previously said that keeping his social networking platform ‘friendly… will ultimately be the key to its success’.
Twitter is a social networking site where users broadcast short posts known as tweets. These tweets can contain text, videos, photos or links.
It is an extremely useful social networking platform mostly for politicians, journalists, executives and celebrities.
450 million people worldwide are currently using Twitter.
