The CEO of Twitter, Linda Yaccarino, has defended the position of the social network owned by Elon Musk before the launch last week of Threads, the new ‘microblogging’ application with which Meta intends to become its main competitor. . “I don’t want to leave you hanging by a thread” month of February.

“Last week we had our busiest day since February. There’s only ONE Twitter. You know that. I know,” Yaccarino says. “I think we can reach an all-time high this week,” Elon Musk himself responded to Yaccarino’s initial tweet. Their comments come after the consulting firm Quiver Quantitative has estimated that Meta’s new platform would have exceeded 100 million users in just five days after its presentation.

I don’t want to leave you hanging by a thread… but Twitter, they really outdid themselves! Last week we had our busiest day since February. There is only ONE Twitter. You know it. I know. 🎤

Also, last week, just hours after Threads’ debut, a lawyer for X Corp, Elon Musk’s company that controls Twitter, threatened to sue Mark Zuckerberg’s company for appropriating trade secrets and intellectual property from the company for the development of its own platform. In a letter sent to Zuckerberg on behalf of X Corp by attorney Alex Spiro of the Quinn Emanuel law firm, the owner of Twitter accused Meta Platforms of carrying out “systematic, willful, and unlawful misappropriation of trade secrets and other property Twitter intellectual”.

X Corp’s lawyer alleges that the company that owns Instagram, Facebook and WhatsApp hired dozens of former Twitter employees who “had and continue to have access to Twitter’s trade secrets and other highly confidential information” assigning them “deliberately” to develop in a matter of months of the ‘Threads’ application, which he calls an “imitation”. “Twitter reserves all rights, including, but not limited to, the right to seek civil and injunctive relief without further notice to prevent Meta from further retaining, disclosing, or using its intellectual property,” the lawyer warned in his letter.

Threads has an ‘interface’ very similar to that of Twitter and its operation is also the same. That is, you can create short text posts, in which you can develop conversion threads and limit who responds to those posts. Although Threads is a completely independent platform, it is related to Instagram. So much so, that to navigate through it, the same user account is used as in said social network. In fact, the same username and profile photo are used.

Based on this, Threads has an option that allows users to automatically follow the same accounts that were previously on Instagram. In the event that any of these accounts are not yet in Threads, they are shown as pending to join and, in the event that they are private, a follow-up request is provided. In the same way, users with a private profile can also configure if their Instagram followers can also follow them in Threads automatically or if, on the contrary, only some specific accounts can do so. As for users under the age of 16, they will have a default private profile.
