Threads could have a big impact on the social media industry. Meta’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced on Thursday that the app had 10 million sign-ups in the first seven hours. Experts say that Threads could pose a serious challenge to Elon Musk-owned Twitter, because it has access to billions of Instagram users, a familiar interface, and a strong advertising advantage. Threads could also appeal to users unhappy with Twitter’s recent changes, such as introducing subscription fees. Threads could also lead to more open and connected social networks in the future, as Meta is working to make Threads compatible with other platforms.
