Threads Flounders After Implementing Hard Rate Limits, Loses User Engagement Daily, And Continues Its Biased Censorship Tactics
Nobody is using Mark Zuckerberg’s new Twitter rip-off, Threads.
Not only do users find it unimportant, but they have also blasted the carbon copy of Twitter for its biased censorship policies and major privacy concerns.
As a result, Threads’ user engagement has fallen off a cliff.
NBC News reports that data from Sensor Tower and Similarweb indicates that the newly released social media platform from Meta has seen a drop off in attention from users. Sensor Tower Data suggests that on Tuesday and Wednesday, daily active users dropped 20% from Saturday while time spent on the platform fell 50% from 20 minutes to 10 minutes.
Similarweb’s data reportedly paints a picture equally as grim as daily active users dropped 25% from a peak on July 7 to Monday, while time spent on the app dropped over 50% from 20 minutes to 8 minutes.
The CEO has already given up on that other app. He hasn’t posted in 4 days and traffic is down 94%. RIP 🪦 pic.twitter.com/2R4vlziJDh

In response to all this terrible backlash for the rip-off, Threads’ is beginning to implement rate limits like Twitter does.
Deadline reported Instagram boss Adam Mosseri announced that the platform would be implementing rate limits to combat bots.
“Spam attacks have picked up so we’re going to have to get tighter on things like rate limits, which is going to mean more unintentionally limiting active people (false positives),” Mosseri shared on Threads.
“If you get caught up those protections let us know,” he added.
Users – in addition to Twitter CEO Elon Musk – are less optimistic than Meta is about this move.
Especially because Threads’ is applying a hard rate limit to a struggling, likely failing social media service that no one wants to use.
Even Meta officials are sounding the alarms over this move.
Add on the fact that Threads is notably silencing conservatives for wrongthink. The platform is proving to be a massive dumpster fire even in its beginning days online.
No wonder many conservatives are still choosing Twitter as their go-to platform.
