Meta’s Threads despatched one other app named Threads to the highest of the App Retailer charts

When Instagram , Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg took to Twitter for the primary time in 11 years. The tweet, which didn’t embrace any textual content, noticed Zuckerberg reference the Spider-Man pointing meme to take a jab at Elon Musk. It seems the usage of that meme was extra apt than the Fb founder might have imagined.

As highlighted by , the discharge of Instagram’s Threads translated right into a boon for one more app of the identical identify.

Nonetheless, it’s humorous a coincidence when you think about Threads, the office chat app, was co-founded by Rousseau Kazi, a former Fb product supervisor. Oh, and Meta used to function an additionally confusingly named Threads. I suppose there’s no originality left in Silicon Valley.
