Elon Musk, the CEO of Twitter, has publicly criticized Meta’s plans to launch a new social media platform that is said to be similar to Twitter. The issue began after the music news website Daily Loud reported that Meta was exploring the idea of creating a Twitter rival.
Musk Responds to User’s Comment with “Copy Cat”
In response to a Twitter user’s comment regarding the motivation behind Meta’s decision, Musk called the move a “copy cat.” The comment immediately sparked reactions from several users, with some expressing doubt about the potential success of a new Meta platform that may be plagued with content moderation issues. Others made sarcastic comments about Facebook’s ability to venture into industries beyond social media.
Meta’s Twitter-like Platform Still in Early Stages
Despite the controversy, Meta’s dedicated Twitter-like app is still in its early stages, and there is no official launch date yet. However, the company’s legal and regulatory teams are already investigating potential privacy concerns surrounding the app. Recently, several rival platforms have emerged, such as Mastodon, Post.news, and T2, following Musk’s takeover of Twitter.
Jack Dorsey Launches Twitter Alternative
In addition to the emergence of rival platforms, Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s co-founder and former CEO, has launched his Twitter alternative called “Bluesky.” The app, currently in the testing phase, is available for download for iOS users via Apple’s App Store. The Twitter-funded microblogging platform is currently an invite-only beta, but a public launch is expected to be announced soon.
