META has launched an offshoot of Instagram called “Threads” which is meant to be a direct Twitter competitor. 30 million users have already signed up to use the platform. Influencers and news media alike have joined in on the marketing campaign to push “Threads” into the hands of Instagram’s existing 2.35 billion users and more. Some new adopters of the platform are already complaining about heavy censorship which was already an issue on Facebook and Instagram. Twitter, on the other hand, does not have the issue of censorship as most big tech platforms ever since Elon Musk took the company over.
