Twitter Threatens To Sue Meta Over Threads


On the day Mark Zuckerberg’s Meta launched Threads, a text-based companion to Instagram, a Silicon Valley law firm representing Elon Musk sent them a cease-and-desist letter, accusing the app of “systematic, willful and unlawful misappropriation” of Twitter’s intellectual property, trade secrets and data.

The letter claims that Meta has hired “dozens of former Twitter employees” over the past year, with access to the company’s trade secrets “and other highly confidential information,” which they used to develop Threads as a “copycat” app.

Meta spokesman Andy Stone dismissed Twitter’s accusations. “No one on the Threads engineering team is a former Twitter employee – that’s just not a thing,” he told Semafor.
