Meta Anticipated Challenger to Twitter is Nearing its Launch

Meta highly anticipated challenger social network, Threads, designed to challenge directly with Twitter, is seemingly on the cusp of its launch. Alessandro Paluzzi, a developer distinguished for reverse engineering myriad apps, discovered the Threads page in Google’s Play Store, which is also the marketplace for Android apps. Paluzzi also unveiled screenshots of the app, as they appear in Play Store’s promotional content.

In the tech community, Paluzzi commands immense respect, courtesy of his impressive record. His prowess in programming allows him to decode hidden information within various apps. On a separate note, last year Paluzzi, a respected Italian developer, revealed Instagram’s plans for a new post-scheduling feature. Additionally, he uncovered Meta’s venture into developing IG Candid, aimed at rivaling BeReal. Paluzzi’s leaked screenshots included a link to the terms of use for Threads. This live page provides future users with insights into the app’s operation and its terms of use.

Threads: Perfect Timing Amid Twitter Limitations

The timing for Threads’ launch could not be more optimal, considering the recent restrictions imposed on viewing tweets. If Threads is in the following days, it could capitalize on the public’s “peak of disappointment” with Twitter’s regrettable new feature. Despite Elon Musk’s assurances that the limitation is temporary, no definite end date has been provided. This ambiguity offers Threads an opportunity to ride on the hype of its debut and its “no limits” preview, capturing Twitter’s audience.

Based on the images revealed so far, users familiar to the public, like jiho100x and gwangurl77, have demonstrated examples of Threads’ use. An enticing factor for prospective users is Threads’ foundation on Instagram, ensuring a smooth transition to this new platform. Users can use their existing Instagram accounts to access Threads, migrating their settings. This integration enables users to begin their Threads journey by following (and being followed by) the accounts they already engage with on Instagram.

Alongside the Threads’ Play Store images, Paluzzi also released a link to download the Threads APK. However, attempts to create accounts through this link have so far been unsuccessful, likely due to the social network’s restricted systems pre-launch. Previously known under codenames “Project 92” and “Barcelona”, Threads was initially presented to a select group of content creators. The presentation slides, as revealed by journalist Lia Haberman, indicate that Threads’ interaction buttons mirror Instagram’s.

However, the feed layout closely resembles that of Twitter. Threads’ development is potentially the reason behind Musk’s playful challenge to Zuckerberg for a fight. In response, Zuckerberg accepted the challenge. This unusual interaction speculated to be a marketing stunt, has caught the attention of Dana White, UFC’s CEO, thus escalating the situation.
