Meta’s Threads app earns over 100 million users in just 5 days


Meta introduced the Threads app on Wednesday as a friendly alternative to Twitter. The latest app is linked via Instagram and has grown massively in just a matter of few days. Threads has exceeded the mark of 100 million users in five days, beating ChatGPT which was the first online platform to set a splendid benchmark.

Meta owner Mark Zuckerberg announced on Monday that the Threads app has crossed the fastest target of 100 million users. From politicians to businessmen and many renowned personalities such as Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian has also joined the app. With its wide-spread reach among the masses, Threads somehow poses a threat to Elon Musk-owned microblogging platform.

Since Musk made amendments to the portal like restricting the number of posts a user can see and also introducing subscription plans for the app, Threads app would be an alternative for users to make new standards.


The Twitter owner also sued Meta for hiring ex-twitter employees for the development of their latest app. The portal also claims that Meta has taken advantage of its Trade secrets and other confidential information that is known to the ex-colleague. Eventually, Meta proved their claims false in a post and stated that their engineering unit does not have Twitter’s prior employees.

Threads app is also similar to Twitter and shares quite some relevance. But that is also the case with many other apps that have emerged in recent times. Threads app enables users to post content of up to 500 characters along with that allows users to include links, photos, and videos for a maximum of 5 minutes.

Although, the app’s impressive success, it still has a long way to go as Twitter has at least 240 active users for a day, as per the company’s statement which was released last year in July. As of now, there are no ads on the Threads app and the CEO Mark Zuckerberg has asserted that the platform will look for monetization only when it reaches out to 1 billion users.
