    Elon Musk Takes Legal Action as Meta’s Twitter Alternative, Threads, Amasses Over 30 Million Users on the First Day

    According to a media report, Facebook‘s group “Meta” has received a warning due to the controversial Twitter rival app called Threads. A lawyer on Twitter has accused Meta in a letter of using confidential information and insider knowledge for the thread service, referring to the website as “Semaphor” and publishing a copy of the letter. In the report, Twitter’s owner, Elon Musk wrote, “Competition is okay, cheating is not,”

    On Thursday night, Meta released its Twitter rival app, Threads. Threads is now being considered the closest competitor to Twitter, partly because the app can leverage over a billion user accounts from the photo and video app Instagram. Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that within the first half-day, Threads had 30 million users on the platform. The Threads account currently has over two million followers.

    Has Meta recruited former twitter employees for its team?

    In the letter, Twitter and Elon Musk’s attorney, Alex Spiro, claimed that Meta has specifically hired several former employees with access to confidential information for its short messaging service. Since the acquisition in October, Musk has reportedly laid off thousands of employees. Many of them have found new jobs in other technology companies. The alleged practice of anti-competitive necessity, which prohibits employers from working for a competitor for a certain period, is prohibited in California.

    The allegations have been denied by Meta, stating it as “Semaphor.” For example, a former Twitter employee stated that they did not work on the Threads development team.

    Spiro has also raised concerns about Meta’s public access to data, such as who is being followed on the short messaging service. So far, there have been no indications that Meta would engage in such practices. The need for these threads may not be necessary, given that the app can create connections among Instagram users. During Twitter’s weekly downtime, you could previously see tweets surpassing 1,000 for free, which annoyed many users. The supposed measurement was explained through data tapping.

    Social Media Platforms: Exploring Five Twitter Alternatives in the Race to Compete with Elon Musk in Below:

    1. BlueSky:
      Bluesky Twitter faces competition from its founder Jack Dorsey himself, among others. BlueSky primarily offers decentralized advertising along with its central method. In contrast to services like Twitter, TikTok, and Facebook, which operate centrally through company servers, users can register on a decentralized platform through smaller servers. The operators of these servers set their own rules, independent of network direction. The profile interface closely resembles Twitter, allowing users to create a username with the “@” handle, have a profile picture, a cover photo, and display the number of followers and accounts followed. Users can create posts with a maximum length of 256 characters and can include photos.
    2. Mastodon:
      MastodonAt this moment, the most well-known Twitter competitor is likely Mastodon. Similar to Bluesky, the platform relies on a decentralized approach, and its ambassador was also former Twitter employee. Registered users can share short messages, called “toots,” similar to the messenger service Telegram. Toots can be up to 500 characters long and can be commented on, boosted, and liked. Mastodon has gained traction following the Twitter exodus. Within a year, the platform has doubled its user base from 5.03 million to 11.2 million—although recent months have seen a decline in monthly active users. Many criticize the platform due to its decentralized nature, which can be confusing.
    3. Soutible:
      SoutibleSoutible aims to revive the former allure of Twitter, creating a space where diverse individuals can share their thoughts. It acts as a centralized platform, contrasting with BlueSky and Mastodon. It presents itself as an inclusive and explicitly curated community. The emphasis is on facilitating meaningful conversations, and Soutible relies on content moderation. Users have reported positive reception, but doubts remain about the platform’s ability to withstand the pressures of scalability.
    4. Post:
      PostThe post aligns closely with Spoutible: it also aims to engage users with a sophisticated and structured approach. In addition to being a platform for posts, it seeks to attract other features such as news portals and journalists. However, it offers a monetization solution where users can directly provide funds for articles and other content through the platform. The platform has received support from well-known investors such as Andreessen Horowitz (A16z), who have invested in companies like Lime, an e-scooter rental company, and the booking platform Airbnb, for example.
    5. Artifact:
      ArtifactThe artifact is somewhat outside the line because it is actually not a social media platform but a news platform. Users can find a personalized news feed with various articles. Alongside content from renowned media brands, it may also include content from small blogs. Although users can comment on posts, they cannot create their own content. The artifact was founded by Kevin Systrom, co-founder of Instagram, who was inspired by TikTok for his startup. Its success primarily relies on a highly refined algorithm that provides users with concise, targeted video recommendations. The artifact employs a similar type of artificial intelligence.
