Elon Musk has been doing his best to downgrade his rival Mark Zuckerberg's Threads, and he has now drawn attention to the Meta chief calling Facebook users 'dumb f***s'.
Threads, mooted as a 'kinder' version of Twitter, was recently launched in 100 countries including the UK, and Musk has been doing his level best to discredit it.
Most recently, he responded to a tweet about Mark Zuckerberg talking about Facebook users when the then Harvard student was just 19.

Musk commented with three exclamation marks after a user shared a grab of the historic chat. During an IM exchange Mark had with a college friend back in 2004, he said: "Yeah so if you ever need info about anyone at Harvard. Just ask.
"I have over 4,000 emails, pictures, addresses, SNS."
The unnamed friend responds: "What? How'd you manage that one?"
"People just submitted it. I don't know why. They 'trust me'. Dumb f***s."
And replying to a tweet about Threads lacking a following tab, Musk chimed in: "A closed source, algorithm-only system means that manipulation of what information people see is essentially undetectable."
Minutes later, he replied with another exclamation mark in response to a Twitter user's tweet about the data Threads stores about its users.

Within an hour he was at it again, replying to a tweet about 'Zuck controlling all social media'.
"Any social media monopoly is despair," he said.
And Twitter is reportedly set to sue Meta over "systematic, wilful and unlawful misappropriation" of trade secrets.
Musk tweeted “competition is fine, cheating is not” in response to the launch of Threads.
Musk's latest move limiting usage for people who don’t pay for his premium blue tick badges on Twitter, has led to a huge backlash and widespread discontent with his handling of the much-loved platform.
Musk started his Twitter reign by making 50% of his staff redundant and introducing the infamous Twitter Blue subscription.
