Meta owns Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, and now it’s going to release a new platform that can be said as Twitter’s new competitor named ‘Threads’. The event is said to be dated July 6th. An early release of this platform’s app made it to the App Store.
‘Threads’- Meta’s New Weapon Against Twitter
“In the launch date teaser on Instagram, Meta mentioned the date of the launch as 6th July at 10 AM ET. The spinning ticket that is shown in the ticket also includes a teaser that takes to threads.net, which appears to be the web portal of the new social media app. On the website, it shows a countdown for the launch date,” mentioned opinion.
“Say more with Threads — Instagram’s text-based conversation app.
Threads are where communities come together to discuss everything from the topics you care about today to what’ll be trending tomorrow. Whatever it is you’re interested in, you can follow and connect directly with your favourite creators and others who love the same things — or build a loyal following of your own to share your ideas, opinions and creativity with the world.” reads the official description of the app.
Twitter Changing Rules for Non-Premium Users
“Threads have been announced at a time when Twitter is facing issues. Recently, Musk blocked unregistered users from being able to see tweets. Later, rate limits were imposed on the users resulting in platform-wide criticism. Musk said in a tweet that rate limits were introduced to block companies, including AI developers, from scraping data from the platform.”
Twitter has also rolled out major changes in TweetDeck, a tool professionals use, including journalists. Furthermore, TweetDeck is scheduled to become a paid feature within a month.
