Meta said on Monday that it plans to “temporarily” shutter Threads in Turkey from April 29, in response to an interim injunction imposed by the Turkish competition authority last month over the way Meta shares data between Threads and Instagram.

The Turkish Competition Authority (TCA), known as Rekabet Kurumu, noted on March 18 that its investigations found that Meta was abusing its dominant market position by combining the data of users who create Threads profiles with that of their Instagram account — without giving users the choice to opt-in.

    I‘m somewhat waiting for folks to pop up defending meta. Where are all the meta inclusionists and shills?

        I think we can do both. Hate the web getting closed up and hate meta at the same time. :D

        The interesting part is that meta among other trillion dollar companies is the reason why the web is this much closed up.
