New York: Twitter boss Elon Musk has threatened Zuckerberg with legal action, a day after Mark Zuckerberg’s company Meta launched social media app ‘Threads’ to take on Twitter. Not only this, Musk has also accused Zuckerberg of theft and fraud of trade secrets. Within 24 hours of launch, Threads has reached 30 million users in 100 countries around the world.
As Meta’s social media app Instagram launches Threads to compete with Twitter, Twitter lawyer Alex Spiro has sent a legal notice to Meta’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg. In the notice, he alleged that Meta recruited several ex-Twitter employees to build the Threads app. He described the notice given to Meta as a ‘formal notice’ to retain relevant documents for a possible dispute between the two comp.es. Twitter claimed that Meta illegally used its trade secrets and other intellectual resources. The company hired ex-Twitter employees who knew Twitter’s trade secrets and other things. This is how Threads mimicked Twitter.
On this issue, Twitter owner Elon Musk said that it is right to compete in business, but it is wrong to cheat.
On the other hand, Meta’s director of communications, Andy Stone, dismissed Twitter’s allegations, saying that Threads’ engineering team does not include any former Twitter employees.
Actually, Twitter had fixed the number of posts for users without blue ticks and now the company has banned users without blue ticks from using TweetDeck. Amidst all this, Musk’s decision is being opposed and users are looking for an alternative to Twitter. Meanwhile, with the launch of Meta’s new app ‘Threads’, a large number of users have switched to it.
However, a day after Threads launched, some analysts said Meta’s new app Threads looks like a text-based version of photo-sharing app Instagram and could be a headache for Twitter. However, the success of threads is not guaranteed. Because Meta’s track record of launching independent apps shows they’ve been shut down later and threads are still early days.
Threads lacks some features. In addition, Meta’s new app has also raised privacy concerns. Threads has launched in over 100 countries, but is not available in the European Union, where it has strict rules on data privacy.
