Record set by the Twitter competitor
The interesting fact is that as of now, Twitter has 450 million users while Threads has amassed 70 million sign-ups over night after its launch. The below Thread by Mark Zuckerberg states: It passed 5 million users in just 4 hours. Later on, Threads has passed 10 million users in 7 hours. It is worth mentioning that as of now, Threads has surpassed the record of 100 million users within limited time period.
Mark fired upon Twitter directly and said that the goal of Threads is to keep it friendly as possible. He further stated, “The only reason Twitter failed to achieve success is as it is less friendly and we will try to do things differently.” He further stated that although its is difficult but surely there will be a public conversation app with 1 billion + people. The Twitter had the best shot to break the record but they were not able to do this. But Threads will. Even the CEO of Instagram Adam Mosseri took on Elon and said, Twitter has become a volatile platform under Elon Musk and it has given us a chance to throw a risky move but worth trying. Many influencers had already been given their accounts on the social app.The celebrities are Karlie Kloss, Tony Robbins, Dana White, Gordon Ramsay, Ellie Goulding, Jack Black, Russell Wilson, and the Brazilian pop star Anitta.
