Meta’s Threads: Will Crypto Twitter Jump Ship?

The Launch of Threads

Hold your tweets, Crypto Twitter! Meta is rolling out its new microblogging platform, Threads, and it’s got everyone buzzing. Twitter’s co-founder, Jack Dorsey, has already thrown shade at the app for its centralization and data harvesting. But is Crypto Twitter ready to make the switch?

Crypto Twitter’s Reaction

Threads is launching hot on the heels of Twitter’s “rate limit” fiasco, which temporarily capped the number of posts users can read per day. But, Crypto Twitter seems to be giving it the cold shoulder. Tiffany Fong, a Crypto Twitter influencer with a whopping 66,600 followers, told Cointelegraph she didn’t even know Threads existed! “I have no clue what the Meta alternative is,” she said. Is this the sentiment across the board?

Privacy Concerns

Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey highlighted Threads’ privacy policy, which indicates that Instagram Inc, the app’s developer, will have access to a treasure trove of user data, including financial info. But wait, there’s more! Twitter is almost in the same boat, collecting similar data. Crypto Twitter, are you taking notes?

Meta’s Track Record

Here’s the kicker: Meta has a history of launching apps only to shut them down later. Nick St. Pierre, a Twitter user who posts about artificial intelligence developments, said, “What Meta doesn’t want you to remember is that they already shut down Threads back in Dec 2021 after shutting down another standalone app called Direct.” Crypto Twitter, is it worth the gamble?

Decentralized Rivals on the Rise

Meanwhile, Mastodon, a decentralized Twitter rival, is gaining traction. With Twitter imposing read restrictions, Mastodon has seen a surge in active users. Crypto Twitter, could this be the real alternative you’ve been waiting for?

Conclusion

Crypto Twitter, the ball is in your court. Will you stick with Twitter despite its limitations, or will you explore the new horizons that Threads and Mastodon offer? Only time will tell.
