Users of Meta’s Twitter rival Threads discovered that Elon Musk has begun limiting search results when they try to find links to Threads on the microblogging platform, despite the platform currently being filled with links to Threads content. Several users of Meta's Twitter rival Threads have complained that they are unable to find links to Threads on the microblogging platform. A user on Threads posted, “Twitter is selectively blocking searches for tweets that link to Threads, even though they allow posting Threads URLs (for now).” Similarly, searching for “threads.net” without the “url:” operator returns dozens of irrelevant results from users with their Threads account in their display name, or who discuss Threads without linking to it, the report said. Meanwhile, Threads users are complaining on Twitter that the app is draining their phone batteries while in use. “Is Threads just… murderous to anyone else’s battery?” a user of the app wrote on their Twitter page.
