Maybe Instagram Threads can actually pull this off

After months of rumours, Meta's Twitter rival is finally here. Threads launched this morning, and according to Mark Zuckerberg, it's already hit over 10M users. It's certainly making waves – and if the experience of the first few hours is anything to go by, this could be the first Twitter rival with a chance of vanquishing the bird site.

It seems an understatement to suggest that Twitter has been a bit of a mess lately. From recent 'rate limits' on the number of tweets users can view to the reinstatement of countless right-wing accounts, it seems Musk et al are determined to diminish the experience. Enter Threads – already perhaps one of the best Twitter alternatives.
