Threads Meta's Twitter rival gains thirty million users, according to Zuckerberg

Meta's Threads app has attracted 30 million users on its first day, according to CEO Mark Zuckerberg. The app is a "friendly" rival to Twitter, which was bought by Elon Musk in October. While some experts believe Threads could attract Twitter users unhappy with recent changes, Twitter CEO Linda Yaccarino argues that its community cannot be duplicated. Threads allows users to post up to 500 characters and features similar to Twitter. Zuckerberg believes the app will be a public conversations app with 1 billion+ people, but Twitter has not yet nailed it. The launch has received positive feedback, with some users describing it as a "much-needed competitor" to Twitter. However, competitors have criticized the app's potential data usage, potentially including health, financial, and browsing data. Meta is working on deleting the app's profile without deleting the associated Instagram account, but users can deactivate it at any time. Threads is available in over 100 countries, including the UK, but not yet in the EU due to regulatory concerns.
