Jack Dorsey takes a jab at Meta’s Twitter competitor threads as social network prepares for release – deadline

Jack Dorsey has given his thoughts on Meta’s new Twitter rival Threads as the social platform prepares for a July 6 launch.

After Apple’s iOS App Store previewed Threads, people have been analyzing what Meta is going to offer. Among those interested in the new digital platform is Dorsey, who has already shared his reaction on Twitter.

“All your threads belong to us,” Dorsey tweeted along with a screenshot of the data the app can collect that links it back to the user.

Musk wanted to respond to Dorsey’s tweet, adding “Yes.”

In the “Data Related to You” section of the App Store, Threads states that it may collect your financial information, contact information, user content, browsing history, usage data, purchases, contacts, identifiers, sensitive information, location, search history and other data.

Looking at the same section of app privacy on Twitter, the platform Dorsey co-founded, some of the data linked to users that developers collect include purchases, contact information, user content, browsing history, usage data, location, contacts, search history , identifiers, diagnostics. Twitter apparently collects a similar amount of data from its users minus health and fitness, financial information and sensitive information.
