Meta's new text-based app, Threads, has achieved a remarkable milestone by surpassing 100 million users in just a matter of days after its launch. This accomplishment puts Threads ahead of ChatGPT, which took two months to reach the same milestone.
The app gained tremendous popularity within hours of its release, with 2 million users signing up within the first two hours. The user base continued to grow rapidly, reaching 5 million, 10 million, 30 million, and eventually surpassing 70 million users.
While the app's early success is noteworthy, it remains to be seen if it can achieve the same widespread popularity as Twitter once did. Meta has stated that it does not aim to replace Twitter and will not actively promote political and heavy news content on the platform.
Meta launched Threads as a new app aimed at competing with Twitter. The application is now available for download on both Google Play and the App Store.
With the release of Threads, users can authenticate using their Instagram accounts and share posts of up to 500 characters, including links, photos, and videos up to 5 minutes in length. Similar to Twitter, users can create individual posts or thread multiple messages under a single topic.
