Threads Earns Millions of New Users Overnight, Already Dubbed The “Twitter Killer”

||, |

The past few months in the tech world have been incredibly interesting to watch. Since Elon Musk’s Twitter takeover, there have been a number of controversial changes to the beloved platform. These changes included new verification account protocols, problems with Twitter’s communication with SEO, and new Tweet reading limitations.

Of course, Mark Zuckerberg saw this as a brilliant opportunity to step in and, after months of speculation, he unveiled the brand-new rival app, Threads. The app is a companion to Instagram, under the umbrella of Meta, and is already being referred to by many as a “Twitter killer.”

Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk’s rivalry is no new thing as the two tech giants have constantly vied for the public eye with their leading global influence. Most recently, the pair have been in headlines after “verbally agreeing” to an mma cage match. While we likely won’t see a literal cage match anytime soon, this new Twitter vs Threads competition is the closest thing we’ll ever get.

Threads only just unveiled its new platform less than 24 hours ago and has already logged over 30 million new users. This is most certainly bad news for Elon Musk’s Twitter and a massive win for Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta conglomerate. With the rise of Threads, does this mean the inevitable end of Twitter? Only time will tell.
