Twitter Rival Threads Has A Record Setting 100 Million Users

PLAYTV by BrightcovePLAYTV by Brightcove


Mark Zuckerberg's industry labeled "Twitter killer" has already amassed 100 million users within its first week. Downloads for Threads, the social media app developed by Meta, surpassed the previous record set by Open AI's ChatGPT app. The app was launched on Apple and Android stores in 100 countries, excluding Europe due to data privacy regulations. Despite reaching an impressive milestone, Threads still falls short of Twitter's estimated 350 million regular users. However, some Twitter users have become dissatisfied since Elon Musk's takeover, leading to job cuts. Musk's changes aimed at revenue generation and vocal support of controversial rightwing figures have all added to the backlash. Other sharks in the sea looking to replace Twitter include platforms like Mastodon and Bluesky. However, Threads has capitalized on its association with Instagram, which boasts over one billion accounts for an early boost.
