Zuckerberg launches Twitter alternative


Media giant Meta has launched a new social network called Threads, which is similar to Twitter. The company's CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, announced this on his social media accounts.

According to Zuckerberg, more than 5 million users registered on the application within the first four hours of its launch.

You can download the Threads app from the App Store. Registration is done through an Instagram account.

Mark Zuckerberg's plans to create a Twitter equivalent became known back in June. The release date was announced just two days ago, on July 4th.

The idea of Threads did not sit well with Elon Musk, the owner of the original social network, as he believes that the whole world will be "under Zuckerberg's boot". He challenged the CEO of Meta to a fight, to which Zuckerberg agreed.

Zuckerberg has been practicing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for about a year now. In May, he participated in his first tournament and won gold and silver medals. A few days after Musk's challenge, he trained with scientist and podcaster Lex Fridman, who holds a black belt in this martial art.

Elon Musk also didn't want to miss out on the action and went to train with Fridman as well. Later, he stated that the fight could take place in the Colosseum.
