The social media landscape has been abuzz with the recent launch of Meta’s Threads. With over 100 million sign-ups on the first day alone, the much-anticipated app has been dubbed the new Twitter. However, sceptics are pointing to the sharp drop in activity on the platform within days of the launch, calling into question its staying power. The question remains: will Threads become a serious Twitter competitor, or will it follow in the footsteps of apps like Clubhouse and Google+, which failed to sustain their initial momentum? Only time will tell. Are you on Threads? If so, what do you make of it? We’re keen to hear your thoughts!
