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.
Meta Platforms, the company behind Facebook, WhatsApp, and Instagram, is planning on releasing a desktop version of their newest text-based app Threads. Adam Mosseri, Head of Instagram, recently stated that Meta is close to releasing a web version of Threads.
It may appear to merely be another shot at creating a Twitter-killer microblogging platform by Meta, but Threads stands for something much bigger.
If Threads does indeed replace Twitter, Zuckerberg will have 3 of the most popular social media apps under his belt, making him more powerful than ever. And that’s something we need to look out for.
Shortly after the launch of Threads, it became apparent that Mark Zuckerberg's new Twitter competitor had opted for a .net domain instead of the customary .com. The reason behind this choice lies in the fact that the .com domain had already been claimed by another platform, also called Threads, led by one Rousseau Kazi, serving as its Co-Founder and CEO.
Twitter, the popular microblogging platform, threatened Meta, the parent company of Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, with a lawsuit a few hours after the launch of Threads - an app many believe to be Meta's replacement for Twitter.
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?
