Twitter Threatens to Sue Meta Over New App Threads, Elon Musk says cheating is not fine

Twitter to Sue Meta

In a recent development, Twitter has issued a warning to Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, regarding their new app Threads. This highly-anticipated application has been dubbed the “Twitter-killer,” but it seems that there is some controversy surrounding its creation.

According to an official warning letter obtained by Semafor, Twitter claims that Meta has violated their intellectual property rights by allegedly poaching former Twitter engineers to build the Threads microblogging platform. However, Meta strongly denies these allegations and asserts that none of the engineers working on Threads have any previous association with Twitter.

In the letter addressed to Meta chief Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter expressed “serious concerns” about Meta’s potential engagement in systematic, wilful, and unlawful misappropriation. The letter serves as a notice of their intention to take legal action against Meta if the matter is not resolved satisfactorily.

Adding to the tension, Twitter owner Elon Musk has also accused Meta of cheating. These allegations are exacerbating an already heated situation between the two tech giants. It remains to be seen how this potential legal battle will unfold and how it will impact the future of the Threads app.

Stay tuned for more updates on this developing story as we closely monitor the actions and responses of both Twitter and Meta.
