It turns out that the fight between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg could happen in the courtroom, not in the ring. Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg received a letter threatening legal action from a Twitter lawyer just hours after the company unveiled Threads, a social media platform that competes with Twitter.

A day after the Threads app launched, a lawyer for its biggest competitor wrote a rather threatening letter to Meta. According to Semaphore, Elon Musk’s attorney, Alex Spiro, accused Meta of creating a “simulation app.” Spiro also said that Meta hired former Twitter employees to work on the app. A copy of the letter was posted on the Semafor network.

In a letter to Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Spiro said, “Twitter intends to strictly enforce its intellectual property rights and demand that Meta take immediate action to stop using trade secrets. of Twitter or other sensitive information”. Additionally, Musk’s lawyer warned Mehta not to engage in data mining on Twitter.

He additionally alleges that Meta deliberately used former Twitter personnel to create a “copycat” app. On behalf of Musk, Spiro accused Meta of hiring former Twitter personnel and rather unusually admitted that they persevered to have get entry to to Twitter`s “extraordinarily private information.” This is some thing that Meta flatly denies.

The chats appear like a combination of Instagram and Twitter. Users can percentage photos, like on Twitter. For videos, customers can publish videos as much as 5 mins long. The subject matter is to be had on iOS and Android at the App Store and Play Store respectively. Users also can get entry to Themes from the laptop website.
