Twitter rival: Threads records 10 million users within hours of launch

Threads, Meta's rival to Twitter, has been launched and has already attracted over 10 million users in its first few hours. The app is a standalone app that allows users to post up to 500 characters, and has many features similar to Twitter. 

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has said that he hopes Threads will become a "public conversations app with 1 billion+ people on it."

The launch of Threads comes as Twitter is facing increasing competition from other social media platforms. Elon Musk's recent acquisition of Twitter has also raised questions about the future of the platform. 

Zuckerberg has taken a shot at Musk, saying that Twitter "has had the opportunity to do this but hasn't nailed it."

In a tweet, Zuckerberg took a playful jab at Elon Musk, expressing his desire for Threads to become a public conversations app with over one billion users, an area where he believes Twitter has fallen short.

It remains to be seen whether Threads will be able to challenge Twitter's dominance. However, the early sign-ups are a promising sign for Meta, and the app could have the potential to become a major player in the social media landscape.

Here are some additional details...

Threads is a standalone app that can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

Users can sign up for Threads using their existing Instagram account.

Threads allows users to post text, photos, and videos.

Threads also has features like Stories, disappearing messages, and group chats.

Threads is currently available in 100 countries, but its release in Europe has been delayed over data privacy concerns.
