Most Nigerians on Twitter have announced their presence on the new Meta Application, Threads.
The app, which has both the features on Twitter and Instagram has caught the attention of quite a number of Nigerians, including celebrities and social media giants in the country.
The platform was launched on July 6, 2023, and has been described by many as a “Twitter-like microblogging platform”.
Since the world’s richest man, Elon Musk, took over the ownership of Twitter from Jack Dorsey, he has introduced several controversial changes, the most recent being temporary limit that has been made to the number of posts users can read daily on the platform.
He said verified users will have access to 6,000 posts daily, while unverified and new users will be allowed to read 600 and 300 posts, respectively.
The restrictions have left users yearning for alternatives.
Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta, however, took up the challenge of creating an alternative.
Zuckerberg, on Thursday, announced that the app recorded its first 5 million users in the first four hours.
Some of the notable Nigerians who have signed up are, TV host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu; Arise host, Rufai Oseni; Skitmaker Sabinus; Comedian Mr Macaroni; Big Brother Naija winner, Mercy Eke and a host of others.
