Twitter, a microblogging plaform has threatened to sue Meta over the release of its new app, Threads.

The Wednesday-launched app already has at least 30 million registered users.

In a statement on Thursday, Mark Zuckerberg, the chief executive of Meta, said that 10 million people had downloaded the App in the first seven hours of its release on Wednesday in the US and more than 100 other nations, including Britain, Australia, Canada, and Japan.

On Thursday night, the number of downloads for threads, which let users make text-based messages that can be liked, shared, and commented on, surpassed 100 million.

In a letter signed addressed to Zuckerberg and signed by one by Alex Spiro, Twitter expressed serious concerns that Meta has engaged in systematic, willful, and unlawful misappropriation of its trade secrets and other intellectual property.

The letter read: “Twitter intends to strictly enforce its intellectual property rights, and demands that Meta take immediate steps to stop using any Twitter trade secrets or other highly confidential information.”
