FILE – In this May, 26, 2010 file photo, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg talks about the social network site’s new privacy settings in Palo Alto, Calif. Zuckerberg turns up at business conventions in a hoodie. Cocky is the word used to describe him most often, after billionaire. He was Time’s person of the year at 26. So when he takes Facebook public, why would he follow the Wall Street rules? The company is expected to file as early as Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2012 to sell stock on the open market in what will be the most talked-about initial public offering since Google in 2004, maybe since the go-go 1990s. Around the nation, regular investors and IPO watchers are anticipating some kind of twist – perhaps a provision for the 800 million users of Facebook, a company that promotes itself as all about personal connections, to get in on the action.

Mark Zuckerberg spent a lot of time Wednesday night hurling keyboard insults at Elon Musk as part of the launch of his new app, Threads.
Around dinnertime, the Twitter competitor launched, and shortly after it went live, Zuck attacked Musk and his bird app on the platform, which many are dubbing the “new Twitter.”
First, Zuckerberg made fun of Twitter while telling Mark Cuban that he hoped Threads would be a more “friendly” platform for communication.
It’ll take some time, but I think there should be a public conversations app with 1 billion+ people on it. Twitter has had the opportunity to do this but hasn’t nailed it. Hopefully we will.
Thread has reportedly had 10 million sign ups in that last 7 hours. Are you creating a Threads account and leaving Twitter? Why?
