Since Elon Musk became the CEO of Twitter, his decisions do not seem to have been the best. Starting with the massive layoffs of more than half of its workforce, added to its new subscription business model, Twitter has not received those positive changes that many expected. The social network is not at its best and Meta takes the opportunity to announce Threadsthe rival Twitter app what will be linked to Instagram.

The social network continues to maintain its essence in that it is the same application where we write tweets and react to or share those of others. Internally, there have been many changes, not only in the company itself, but in the platform itself.

This of course caused enormous criticism from users and Elon Musk assured that these limitations would be temporary. In the midst of this chaos on Twitter, Meta takes the opportunity to launch his secret weapon.
