Twitter will take legal action against Meta
Twitter is threatening legal action against Meta Platforms over Meta’s new Threads platform. Citing the letter sent by Twitter’s lawyer Alex Spiro to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Semaphore also reported on this on Thursday.
Spiro wrote in the letter that Twitter will take legal action against Meta to strictly enforce its intellectual property rights.
Meta started Wednesday Meta Threads. Twitter isn’t happy about this because the new social media firm has the potential to take advantage of Instagram’s billions of users and diminish Twitter’s existence. Meta has not yet commented on this.
Twitter’s ad dollars are also likely to decrease due to Meta’s threads. Threads was recently launched as a standalone app. Users can log in to Threads using their Instagram credentials and use the same account. Many have given the name of ‘Twitter-Killer’ to the thread.
Like Twitter, the Threads app lets you post short text posts in which users can like, repost, and reply to posts.
According to Meta Blog Posts, posts can be up to 500 characters long and links, photos and up to five minutes of video can also be posted in threads. This app is available in more than 100 countries on both Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store.
