Elon Musk was not happy with Mark Zuckerberg and the reason for the discontent has a name: Threads, the new social network from Meta.
But it seems Elon Musk is taking the resentment a step further, and right now, Twitter is selectively blocking links from Threads in its search engine.
Twitter search engine “unaware” of Threads links
The world of social networks is competitive, despite the fact that most users have an account on each of the (many) platforms of this type. But Elon Musk is taking this competitiveness to the level of resentment.
The Tesla CEO and owner of Twitter has already publicly criticized Meta’s new social network, Threads. But it seems that he did not stop there. According to 9to5Mac, the Twitter search engine is selectively blocking links from Threads.
In other words, any user who turns to Musk’s social network search engine to search for Threads links will not be successful. But for now, users can still include a Threads link in their tweets.
It should also be noted that this block is not covering all links in Threads, however, it is making it quite difficult to find threads on the new social network.
The reason for this is not known, but some media, such as the Techcrunch website, assure that those responsible for Twitter, including Elon Musk, are concerned about a drop in traffic on that social network.
But the message conveyed by top Twitter officials goes in exactly the opposite direction. Linda Yaccarino, CEO of Elon Musk’s social network, has already publicly confirmed the success of the platform. In a recent tweet, the person in charge revealed that last week Twitter had the most used day since February and in congratulating her on this fact she ends up saying that “there is only one Twitter”.
All this fuss happened after the Reuters news agency reported that the social network Threads surpassed 100 million subscriptions and that, in the week of its launch, it was the most searched application on the App Store in the United States and the United Kingdom.
