Meta Platforms, the parent company of Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram, have globally released the official desktop version of their text-based social media platform, Threads. The announcement was confirmed by Adam Mosseri, Head of Instagram, in a Threads post.
Instagram’s much-hyped microblogging app, Threads has been officially launched, and it looks a lot like Elon Musk’s Twitter. According to AP News, Meta Platform’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that around 10 million people have registered for Threads in the first seven hours of its launch. So, does it have a real chance to overtake Twitter?
Threads, unlike its invite-only beta phase competitor Bluesky, seems to have no restrictions on user access, apart from requiring an Instagram account.
