Is this the end of Twitter? Blog article written by Ted Prodromou

Meta's answer to Twitter was released yesterday afternoon. 

Threads now has over 30 million members. 

Of course, I jumped on board to check it out because that's what I do (my wife still doesn't know what I've been doing for the past 20 years because she doesn't understand marketing and has no desire to learn). 

I was one of the first LinkedIn members. 

I jumped on the Twitter bandwagon in the first week. 

I was a member of Friendster, Google Plus, and Vine (remember those?) 

I was also an early adopter of Clubhouse. 

Will Threads thrive or join the social media graveyard? 

Threads uses your Instagram login and network so you can quickly build a large following. 

Leveraging 2 billion Instagram users will help Threads build a large user base. 

Last night people were excited on Threads. 

GaryVee, Mark Cuban, and other thought leaders were very active. 

Exploring a new social network is an interesting experience as we're all trying to figure it out. 

Comments and posts were positive. 

The trolls haven't arrived yet. 

No hate speech. 

No personal attacks. 

No fake content. 

The fact Threads is closely associated with Instagram gives me hope it will be a positive experience for the most part. 

Enjoy the positive experience while we can. 

Follow me on Threads at tedprodromou and let's figure this out together.
