FAQs: Twitter Competitors and Alternatives
Meta’s latest launch, Threads, is the closest thing to Twitter.
However, despite that, Threads failed to deliver the direct messages for your page and the overall fiery zest that you see with Twitter users. There is an internal joke that Threads is a Twitter-like platform for Instagram-minded people.
As of 2023, Twitter’s top three social media competitors are Pinterest, Diligent Boards, and Instagram for Business. All of these platforms have ratings between 4.5 to 4.4.
Currently, Twitter’s top weakness is the lack of monetization. And since the user’s revenue primarily depends on advertisements, other platforms seem to give the text-based platform good competition.
