Threads Is Live—Now What Happens?

From The Poynter Report with Tom Jones:

Twitter now has some competition. Threads — the social media app that could end up being competition for the Elon Musk-owned (and some say Musk-ruined) Twitter — is now live. The Meta-owned, Instagram-companion social network is off to a flying start, with more than 30 million users in the first 16 hours after it went live.

In a post on Threads, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote, “This is as good of a start as we could have hoped for!” He later added, “Feels like the beginning of something special.”
