Launched a few months ago, Meta's Threads app continues to grow its audience.

Meta Twitter/X Threads competitor is developing at a steady pace. The social network now has more than 150 million monthly active users, which is 20 million more than in February, Mark Zuckerberg said during a conversation about the company's earnings for the first quarter of 2024, writes TechCrunch.

Following its latest quarterly earnings report, Threads notably took steps to integrate with ActivityPub, a decentralized protocol that runs on networks like Mastodon. In March, the company allowed US users over 18 to connect their accounts to Fediverse so their posts would appear on other servers.

The company also plans to release its API to a wide range of developers before June, allowing them to create experiences around the social network. However, it is still not clear whether Threads will allow developers to create full-fledged third-party clients.

Let's remember that the microblogging service from Meta Threads was launched about nine months ago. Unlike X ( Twitter) Threads does not offer a space to share or discuss news. In a matter of days, Mark Zuckerberg's Threads social network has reached 100 million users.. This happened even faster than in the case of ChatGPT. After this, the popularity of the social network subsided, but it continues to attract users and add new functions.
