    Mark Zuckerberg’s Threads App Receives Backlash For Censoring Anti-Government Posts On The Very First Day

    Social media platforms have become an important part of everyone’s lives. Apart from Facebook and Twitter, Instagram is equally famous among the public, and just like the other two, people holding accounts on Instagram get the facility of sharing their day-to-day moments. A new platform named Threads was launched by Mark Zuckerberg.

    It now holds a record of around 5 million sign-ups in the first few hours of operation. It is already available in Apple App Store and Google Play Store in around 100 countries. But, a controversy has emerged about it already.

    Netizens Criticize Threads For Censoring Anti-Government Posts

    Threads has been slammed for censoring anti-government posts

    Threads is on the way to becoming a popular social media platform like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. It looks similar to Twitter and a few of the things have been changed with retweets being named to reposts and tweets have been changed to threads.

    Although it has been some time since the platform was launched, it has become a subject of criticism where users have expressed their frustration with the ban on anti-government posts.

    Some users have also shared screenshots of the platform on Twitter, saying that they posted about the governments of other countries due to which they were flagged for censorship. Meanwhile, Threads has not shared any statement on the same and are yet to respond to the criticism.

    Threads has similar features like Twitter

    Just like a majority of social media platforms, posts can also be shared on Threads with 500 characters. Videos can be posted but their length can be a maximum of five minutes. Other things remain the same, including unfollowing, blocking, restricting, and reporting.

    Meta was launched after Twitter imposed viewing limits on tweets and the platform said that it was because of data harvesting by companies making artificial intelligence models. This move also received a negative response on different social media platforms which ranged from caution to enthusiasm.
