Musk - Twitter CEO - returns to be the protagonist but, this time, as an “accuser”.
Musk accused Zuckerberg - Meta CEO- of cheating after Threads’ launch.
Threads is a new social media launched by Meta whose goal is to replace Twitter. As in Twitter, the main home of Threads consists of a very simple vertical scrolling list of text posts, photos and short videos to whom users can reply quickly and easily.
The character limit for Threads is 500 characters, as opposed to Twitter's 280 for basic users and 10,000 for Twitter Blue users.
Twitter lawyer Alex Spiro sent a letter to Mark Zuckerberg notifying that he’s ready to take legal action.
On July 5, Spiro wrote that Twitter team want to “strictly enforce its intellectual property rights“.
Spiro accused Meta of engaging ex Twitter’s employees who have access to all informations.
Zuck - as Spiro claims - would have taken this action to speed up the development process of the new social network.
The lawyer highlighted also that Meta mustn’t Twitter’s followers.
