On Sunday, Elon Musk suggested to Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, a new competition. However, this could make major advertisers wary of coming back to Twitter.
This tweet was a follow-up to one Musk sent about 9 hours earlier in which he declared, “Zuck is a cuck.”
A genuine cage match between Musk and Zuckerberg has been proposed barely two weeks after the two men threatened to fight each other.
Musk has tweeted photographs of himself with trainers, but it’s still not certain if the battle will go forward. Prior to the suggestion of this billionaire combat, Zuckerberg had already begun jiu jitsu training.
A large portion of Musk’s Sunday was spent tweeting, with the focus being on Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Meta’s new Twitter competitor, Threads.
With the help of Threads, which allows anyone with an Instagram account to sign up for Zuckerberg’s platform, the service has already garnered over 70 million users.
Speculations on Launching Thread Apps
Some believe that Zuckerberg hastened the debut of Threads in order to profit from what is viewed as disarray at Twitter. The Verge claims that while promoting Threads to online celebrities, Meta positioned the service as a “sane” alternative to Twitter.
Musk also revealed over the weekend that most users will be limited to seeing only 600 tweets each day, which the Atlantic sarcastically compared to setting a 12-item limit on all consumers at Costco. Although the charges have been raised significantly or perhaps eliminated entirely since then, the move gave the advantage to rivals.
However, Musk, who purchased Twitter for $44 billion at the end of last year, has been unimpressed by any of his competitors’ attempts. Musk handed up the CEO position to NBCUniversal’s Linda Yaccarino at the beginning of June, and she is largely regarded as the right person to restore trust among brands on Twitter.
However, Musk appears to be making every effort to drive home the point that Twitter is anarchy, and he likes it that way.
