Twitter has threatened legal action against Meta, charging it of illegally stealing trade secrets and intellectual property.
The new text-based Instagram sibling app from Meta, Threads, isn't exactly making Twitter pleased. According to the recent reports, Twitter has threatened legal action against Meta, charging it of illegally stealing critical trade secrets and intellectual property as well as poaching former employees.
In a letter to Meta, Elon Musk's personal attorney Alex Spiro stated that Twitter would strictly enforce its intellectual property rights and demanded that Meta take urgent action to avoid using any Twitter trade secrets or other highly confidential material. Additionally, he stated that Twitter reserves the right to seek civil remedies as well as injunctive relief without further notice in order to stop Meta from continuing to hold onto, divulge, or use Twitter's intellectual property.
Spiro, speaking on behalf of Twitter's parent company X Corp, asserts that Meta has employed numerous former Twitter employees in the past 12 months. According to him, the business "deliberately assigned" them to work on Threads "with the specific intent that they use Twitter's trade secrets and other intellectual property in order to accelerate development of Meta's competing app." Additionally, according to Spiro, Meta is not allowed to scrape information from Twitter about users' followers.
