Meta’s Threads platform attracted 10 million users within seven hours, says CEO Mark Zuckerberg. It aims to rival Twitter and is tied to Instagram. The number is small compared to Instagram’s 1.35 billion users and Twitter’s 335 million, but it’s a positive start.
Zuckerberg actively participated in Threads after the launch and stressed the importance of maintaining a friendly platform for success. Meanwhile, Twitter CEO Elon Musk prefers facing criticism on Twitter rather than the “false happiness” of Instagram. Threads joins other contenders like Mastodon, BlueSky, and Spill in the race to become the next Twitter.
