Meta’s new application Strings saw a blast of new clients in its initial not many days, unparalleled by some other organization meaning to equal striving web-based entertainment stage Twitter — or practically any application in the previous ten years. According to data from Quiver Quantitative, more than 100 million users are thought to have joined Threads in less than five days.
The app, widely regarded as a competitor to Twitter, had already been downloaded by 2 million individuals within two hours of its launch on July 5. According to internal company data, users had already posted more than 95 million posts and received 190 million likes by the beginning of July, as reported by The Verge. By the morning of July 7, recruits had outperformed 70 million, a figure President Imprint Zuckerberg said was “far past our assumptions.”
Twitter and its owner, Elon Musk, have not forgotten the company’s early success, as evidenced by his criticism of the app on the platform on Thursday evening. In response to Threads, Twitter’s legal team reportedly sent a letter claiming that Meta had engaged in “unlawful misappropriation” of its trade secrets.
