Threads’ Ascendancy Since Musk’s Twitter Takeover

Since Musk’s acquisition of Twitter and its rebranding as X for $44 billion, drastic operational changes have fueled concerns about the giant’s stability. This upheaval has paved the way for alternative microblogging services like Threads, Bluesky, and Mastodon. Appfigures data underscores Threads as a frontrunner in this emerging landscape.

Threads’ Resilience and X’s Decline

Threads, launched in July 2023, swiftly attracted over 100 million users within a week. Although initial enthusiasm waned, Threads maintained higher daily downloads compared to Service X, which experienced a decline. By December, Threads’ downloads surged again, doubling and sometimes tripling X’s installs over the past three months.

Despite the disparity in download rates, it’s crucial to acknowledge that mature platforms like X may naturally attract users at a slower pace than newer services. However, recent financial reports reveal Threads surpassing a quarter of X’s active user base in less than a year, notes NIX Solutions.

X’s Challenges and Threads’ Triumph

An analysis indicates a decline in X’s scores after a year of Musk’s leadership, with Fidelity valuing the company 70% lower than its 2022 acquisition cost. Platform X faces escalating bot-related issues, affecting the determination of genuine active users. In contrast, Threads, bolstered by anti-spam efforts, has gained momentum in user adoption.
