Lifestyle & Social, Science & Technology
Changes are being rolled out to the Threads app that will enable users to delete their account while keeping the linked Instagram account. An Instagram account is required to sign up to the Twitter-like app, but users were frustrated that it was impossible to delete Threads alone. Instagram boss Adam Mosseri revealed the change in a post on Threads. Initially hailed as a "Twitter-killer", Threads struggled to sustain early record-breaking growth.ADVERTISEMENT In October Mark Zuckerberg, the head of parent-company Meta, revealed that three months on from its July launch the app was attracting around 100 million monthly users - down by more than a half.

In 2021, Australian users were blocked from sharing or viewing news on Facebook in response to a similar law. Canada’s Online News Act, which cleared the senate on Thursday, lays out rules requiring platforms like Meta and Google to negotiate commercial deals and pay news organisations for their content. Meta has called the law “fundamentally flawed legislation that ignores the realities of how our platforms work”. On Thursday, it said news availabil...
