Elon Musk, the renowned entrepreneur and CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, has once again made headlines with his witty remarks aimed at Mark Zuckerberg's upcoming Twitter-like app, Threads. As the launch date for Threads draws near, Elon, known for his outspoken nature, couldn't resist taking a jab at his tech rival. Being no stranger to controversy himself, Elon has been engaged in a public feud with Zuckerberg, triggered by Meta's introduction of Threads, which is poised to be a formidable competitor to established social media platforms. With his characteristic humor, Elon expressed his readiness to engage in a battle with Mark over the new service. As negotiations and preparations intensify between these tech giants, the anticipation for their clash only grows stronger. Elon Musk's influence and sharp commentary continue to captivate the tech world, leaving us eagerly awaiting the next chapter in this unfolding saga.
Elon Musk Takes a Dig at Mark Zuckerberg's Upcoming Twitter-Like App, Days Before Launch
With Mark Zuckerberg's new Twitter-like app, Threads, set to launch in just a few days, tensions between the tech giants Elon Musk and Zuckerberg are escalating. The rivalry stems from Meta's introduction of Threads, touted as the "new" Twitter, under Mark's leadership.
When Elon first learned about Zuckerberg's latest venture, he jokingly expressed his willingness to engage in a battle. Now, negotiations are underway as they prepare for a potential showdown.
The saga took a full circle on Monday, as the anticipated launch date for Threads was revealed to be July 7, accompanied by the option to pre-order the app on Apple's app store. Additionally, details emerged about the extensive user data that Threads plans to collect, prompting Elon to take a swipe at the handling of personal information.
In response to the data management practices of Threads, Elon quipped, "Thank goodness they're so sanely run," implying skepticism about the extent of user data control. The comment carries significance considering previous reports suggesting that a Meta executive claimed Threads would be more "sanely run" compared to Musk's Twitter activity, which has been viewed as unpredictable.
It's evident that Elon may have concerns about this new competitor entering the market, particularly given the backlash he faced for limiting users' daily tweet count. Although he has since revised the limit, dissatisfaction remains, and people are actively seeking alternative platforms for news consumption.
These developments only add fuel to the fire and provide further motivation for Elon's desire to take on Mark. As the backstage negotiations unfold, the stage is set for an intense clash between these tech titans.
