🐦💔 ‘Bird’s Song Goes Silent?’ 🚀 Twitter Tumbles While Newbie Threads 🧵 Nabs 100 Million Users in Record Time!
A wave of Twi-xit (Twitter exit) appears to be sweeping the social media world, as the newer and shinier social media platform, Threads, managed by Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, 🧑💻 gains momentum. Has Twitter’s 🐦 falcon finally found its falconer? Threads, barely a week old, soared past the 100 million users mark, putting it on a fast-track to outstrip Twitter’s user base. Amid all this, internet traffic analysts suggest a noticeable dip in Twitter usage. 📉 Who’s switching lanes, and why? Even Musk’s jet-tracking nemesis, Jack Sweeney, is now on Threads! But, will the tussle between Twitter and Threads decide the ultimate victor in the social media race, or is there more to it? 🤔
💡So, what’s the latest Tweet on the street? Here’s a stitch-by-stitch breakdown of the Threads saga:
It’s been a rough patch for Twitter, wrestling with management mishaps, layoffs, intermittent service interruptions, and fleeing advertisers. 🏃♂️ But, the arrival of Threads could potentially be Twitter’s checkmate. The blue bird’s 🐦 traffic, which was already on a downward trajectory for months, seems to have taken a nosedive in the last few days. Why the sudden sprint away from Twitter, though? Are we witnessing a Twitter apocalypse, or is it just a temporary Thread-mania?
But hold on! Who else is hitching a ride on the Threads bandwagon? Jack Sweeney! Remember him? 🕵️♂️ He’s the Florida college student who developed ElonJet, a Twitter account that mapped Musk’s private jet 🛩️ in real time using publicly accessible data. After a roller-coaster ride involving a $50,000 request, a Twitter account suspension, and over 500,000 followers, Sweeney has also made his nest on Threads. Is this the beginning of an exodus or just Sweeney taking another wild ride?
Data from Cloudflare and Similarweb suggests that Twitter’s web traffic has taken a nosedive. And here’s a kicker! Even Threads users like Alex Stamos, director of the Stanford Internet Observatory, claim that despite having fewer followers on Threads than Twitter, their posts get more engagement on the former. 😮 Could this be the end of Twitter as a serious tech conversation platform, as Stamos suggests?
But before we start ringing any death knells, it’s important to remember that while Threads may be challenging Twitter, it’s not positioning itself as a complete replacement. Zuckerberg and Instagram head Adam Mosseri have emphasized that Threads aims to capture audiences beyond Twitter’s traditional user base, meaning Threads won’t actively prioritize news or political content. 📰🚫 Is this a game-changing move that will open the social media floodgates, or will it turn potential users away?
Now, let’s not forget the longstanding rivalry between Musk and Zuckerberg. 👊💥 Threads’ surge to success seems to have fired up their feud even further, with Twitter accusing Meta of trade secret theft and Musk throwing…ahem…colorful insults at Zuckerberg. Are we in for a showdown or will these social media tycoons find a way to coexist?
So, here’s the 1 million (or should we say 100 million?) user question for you: Is Twitter truly going down the drain, or will it bounce back in a plot twist that puts Threads in a twist? Or are they just going to keep pulling each other’s legs while another dark horse 🐎 comes galloping out of nowhere to grab the social media crown? 👑💭
