Meta said ‘Threads’ has been made available for pre-order on the Apple Store.

“Threads is where communities come together to discuss everything from the topics you care about today to what will be trending tomorrow,” the description of the app says On Apple Store.

The new Meta app is said to be a replica of the popular micro-blogging platform, Twitter, and its unveiling is coming amidst several features introduced by Musk.

The move comes months after Mark Zuckerberg, chief executive officer (CEO) of Meta, and Elon Musk, chairman of Twitter agreed to pair up for a cage fight.

“Thank goodness they’re so sanely run”, Mr Musk responded to a tweet about Threads, in an apparent fresh swipe at Mr. Zuckerberg.


Meanwhile, Twitter has said that the popular user dashboard, TweetDeck will go behind a paywall in 30 days’ time.


The move is the latest push by Mr. Musk as he tries to get users to sign up to Twitter’s subscription service, Twitter Blue.


On Saturday, the multi-billionaire restricted the number of tweets users could see, citing extreme “data scraping”.


It appears from Meta’s Threads app that it will be a free service and there will be no restrictions on how many posts a user can see.
