Twitter has reportedly threatened to sue Meta over its newly launched rival social media app, Threads.
Recall that Meta had launched its competitor to Twitter in 100 countries.
Reports claim that less than 24 hours after its release, the new app got 30 million sign-ups.
A lawyer for Twitter, Alex Spiro, responded to this in a letter sent to Mark Zuckerberg stated:
“Twitter has serious concerns that Meta Platforms (Meta) has engaged in systematic, willful, and unlawful misappropriation of Twitter’s trade secrets and other intellectual property.”
“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.”
As of the time of this report, Representatives for Twitter and Meta are yet to publicly comment on the lawsuit.
