Elon Musk hits out at Zuckerberg as Threads seems 'Threat' to Twitter after 30 million sign-ups

Meta’s Threads gained over 30 million sign-ups within 18 hours of its release, which has sparked a rivalry between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg. Musk humorously responded to a tweet mocking Meta’s logo, while Zuckerberg aims to establish Threads as the preferred platform for people.

As Meta’s Threads gained over 30 million sign-ups within approximately 18 hours of its release, posing as the initial significant competition to Twitter-owned by Elon Musk, Musk took to Twitter and responded to different threads with jabs directed at Mark Zuckerberg.

In response to DogeDesigner’s tweet suggesting that Meta’s new app logo resembles a tapeworm, Musk humorously replied, “Metaphorically too.”

Meanwhile, Twitter responded on Thursday by threatening to sue Meta, according to the publication Semafor, citing a letter delivered to Zuckerberg by a lawyer for Twitter. Meta said no one on the Threads engineering team is a former Twitter employee, Reuters reported.

Twitter CEO Linda Yaccarino has also not publicly commented on Wednesday’s letter, but seemingly appeared to address Threads’ launch in a Thursday tweet.

“We’re often imitated — but the Twitter community can never be duplicated,” Yaccarino wrote.

Since Elon Musk’s acquisition of Twitter for $44 billion last year, several competitors have emerged in response to the chaotic decisions made by Musk, which have led to the alienation of users and advertisers. Musk’s most recent action includes implementing a restriction on the number of tweets users can read per day.

Threads was introduced as a spin-off of Instagram, giving it a built-in audience of more than two billion users and sparing the new platform the challenge of starting from scratch, AFP reported.
