Max Tani: Twitter Is Threatening to Sue Meta Over Threads

a lawyer for Twitter, Alex Spiro, sent a letter to Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg accusing the company of engaging in “systematic, willful, and unlawful misappropriation of Twitter’s trade secrets and other intellectual property.”
Spiro accused Meta of hiring dozens of former Twitter employees who “had and continue to have access to Twitter’s trade secrets and other highly confidential information.”

Meta claims no former Twitter employees worked on Threads, but even if they did, who cares. Musk hastily fired like 70% of Twitter’s staff when he came in and color me skeptical that he got all of them to agree to not work on a similar social network for a set period as he was firing them.

The fall of Twitter continues.
