Twitter boss Elon Musk said Tuesday that “cumulative user seconds of phone screentime per day” could reach an “all-time record” this week.
“I don’t want to leave you hanging by a thread…but Twitter, you really outdone yourself!” tweeted Twitter CEO Linda Yacarino. Last week was our biggest usage day since February. . There is only one Twitter. You know it. I know it.”
To this, Musk replied: “Cumulative user-seconds of phone screentime per day, as reported by iOS and Android, is hardest hit by games. I think we can set an all-time record this week.”
Later, Musk posted: “It’s great to see picture in picture while scrolling through this platform.”
“You’ll get more laughs from this app than from everything else,” he said on Monday.
Matthew Prince, CEO of IT service management company Cloudflare, on Sunday tweeted a graph showing Twitter’s declining Domain Name System (DNS) ranking since January.
Last week, after Meta launched its Twitter-rival ‘Threads’, Yacarino said, “we often imitate – but the Twitter community can never be imitated”.
Meta launched Threads on July 5 for iOS and Android users in 100 countries, and it’s currently one of the top free apps on the App Store.
Announcing the 100 million user sign-up on Threads, Meta founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said on Monday: “Threads reached 100 million sign ups over the weekend. It’s mostly organic demand and we haven’t even started many promotions yet. Can’t believe it’s only been 5 days!”
