Twitter staff flocking to Meta’s Threads, one says “just better”


Many Twitter employees have flocked to rival app Threads in the aftermath of its record-breaking launch, a new report claims. 

This is despite heightened tensions between Twitter’s Elon Musk and his Meta rival Mark Zuckerberg.

One Twitter staffer even admitted Threads was ‘just better’, according to The Daily Beast, adding: ‘I’m going to get fired for this, but I work at Twitter right now and have never really used it. Here’s to a new world!’

Another user complimented the ease of Threads’ registration process, posting: ‘[Not gonna lie] the signup flow was really nice.’

But these employees are not the only ones, as the publication claims that nearly a quarter of a sample of 133 staffers have signed up to the ‘Twitter-killer app’.

Musk’s workforce currently includes roughly 1,700 people, meaning it is possible that hundreds may have joined.

MailOnline also found that other former and current Twitter employees have used Threads to voice grievances against it or promote Musk’s platform.

Bruce Daisley, who previously worked as the Vice President of Twitter in Europe, the Middle East and Africa branded Threads ‘a mess of the hottest sort’.

He wrote: ‘I hope someone at Threads Towers has a busy day ahead doing computer stuff because this is a mess of the hottest sort right now.’

In a separate post he added: ‘Welcome to Threads. I already hate it.’

Meanwhile, Twitter software engineer Tom Blacknell wrote: ‘Everyone should check out Twitter.’

Dionne Grant, a partner manager at the firm also jokingly posted: ‘Research purposes and that,’ to which one user replied a winking GIF.

News of this comes just days after Twitter threatened to file a lawsuit against Meta over its new ‘copycat’ Threads platform.

Meanwhile, Threads has confirmed that a major update will soon be available, less than a week after its record-breaking launch.
