Meta’s new Twitter competitor, Threads, aims to collect Instagram users’ data, including health, location, search history, and sensitive information.


As a result, the app will not be launched in the EU while it is released in the US and UK on Thursday. A spokesperson for Ireland’s Data Protection Commission (DPC) says that the regulatory authority has been in contact with Meta regarding the new service and has been informed that it will not be released in the EU “at this time.”

Threads is designed to import data from Instagram, including behavioral and advertising information.
