Facebook and Instagram owner is launching Twitter rival called Threads

Expected to debut on Thursday, Meta’s new discussion-based Threads app is certainly a response to Twitter’s current turmoil and user exodus.

A rival for Twitter is coming to the social media universe Thursday, and while it may just seem like another alternative to the platform that brought us hashtags and tagging, this one may be the blue bird’s biggest competitor.

“Threads is where communities come together to discuss everything from the topics you care about today to what’ll be trending tomorrow,” reads the description.

“Whatever it is you’re interested in, you can follow and connect directly with your favorite 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.”

If that sounds a lot like Twitter, well, that’s the idea.

With Twitter mired in controversy and confusion since owner Musk took over the platform, a slew of rivals have popped up in an attempt to win over disgruntled Twitter users.

Such services as Mastodon and Bluesky have been touting themselves as Twitter alternatives, offering places where people can communicate and share ideas about different topics.

Meta could be the one company to pose a serious threat to Twitter. The company holds almost three billion Facebook users and more than two billion Instagram users, all of whom could be candidates to join Threads.

And Meta is making the process relatively seamless. Instagram users who hop on board Threads can stick with the same username and follow the same accounts.

There’s no need to start from scratch as with other Twitter rivals.

At the same time, Musk’s ongoing and random tweaks of the Twitter platform continue to trigger complaints from users. Over the weekend, the Twitter owner revealed that the company has started limiting how many tweets you can read per day based on your level of access.

Though Musk touted the move as a way to cut down on data scraping and system manipulation, many Twitter users expressed concern and confusion over how the new limits would play out.

Meta hasn’t revealed many details about Threads, though the App Store description shares a few tidbits.

The app itself will be free and will be available in more than 30 different languages. So far, only the App Store lists the program; however, a mobile developer named Alessandro Paluzzi tweeted on Saturday that Threads had appeared on Google play store, even posting screenshots of its Play page.

An email sent to Twitter looking for commentary on the new Threads app resulted in the company’s usual response of an automated message displaying a poop emoji.

An email to Meta with a few questions received no specific answers, just a link to an Instagram post from Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg promoting Threads with a due date of July 6.
