Twitter threatens to sue Meta over Threads app


Twitter has threatened to sue Meta over its new Threads app, the news outlet Semafor reported on Thursday.

In a letter to CEO Mark Zuckerberg published by Semafor, a lawyer for Twitter said the company “has serious concerns that Meta Platforms (Meta) has engaged in systematic, willful and unlawful misappropriation of Twitter’s trade secrets and other intellectual property”.

Threads: how do I sign up and is it any different to Twitter?

“Twitter intends to strictly enforce its intellectual property rights, and demands that Meta take immediate steps to stop using any Twitter trade secrets or other highly confidential information,” Alex Spiro wrote in the letter.

Representatives for Twitter and Meta did not immediately respond to the Guardian’s request for comment.

Meta on Wednesday launched its rival to Twitter in 100 countries. According to the company, the app had garnered 30m sign-ups less than 24 hours after launching.
