It was July 5 when an app called ‘Threads’ was launched. Threads is a social media platform and social networking service owned and operated by Meta Platforms. The app offers users the ability to post and share text, images, and videos, as well as to interact with other users’ posts through replies, reposts, and likes. It requires users to both have an Instagram account and use Threads under the same Instagram handle, The application is available on iOS and Android devices with full functionality. And as you logged in you get a option to follow everyone with the ‘Follow all’ option making it easier for the users to follow the accounts they like.
If you are a long time Twitter user, then this app has a same features as twitters. So a wide audience started mentioning the app as ‘Twitter killer’ as many audience from twitter started experiencing the new app and its features. As per sources, ‘Threads’ gained 100 million users within its first five days, surpassing the record previously set by ChatGPT. Looking at the tweets of the Elon Musk, it seems like the app was copying the same features as that of Twitter. The hype was unreal ! Threads aims to provide users with a similar experience to Twitter.
But as days went by, the daily active users on ‘Threads’ app started declining rapidly. Its daily active users stands at around 13 million—down from 44 million on July 7—and the average daily time spent on the app is four minutes, which is down from its launch day peak of 19 minutes, according to Sensor Tower. It seems like people lost the interest in the app due to lack of features. I was too confused whether to use hashtags in conversations to make it visible to wide audience. As days went by, many of them returned back on Twitter. Elon Musk was shown interest in liking the tweets of the users sharing the stats of declining active users of the rival app on Twitter.
Talking about Twitter, the app has recently introduced many new features where users meeting certain requirements can monetize and earn on this platform making it easier for them to earn. So what do you think? Will Mark Zuckerberg revamp the app with amazing features and giving it a tough challenge for Elon’s Twitter? Lets wait and find out.
It’s been 7 month I have been staying in Kuwait. I remember as soon as I Step outside Kuwait Airport, for the first time in life I experienced how it feels to live in 0°C. And reaching the Camp at 1:00 am and first day at work at just 5:00 am the same day 🙇 . Whenever I remember that day it always make a uncomfortable and sad for a moment.
So there are amazing places to visit in Kuwait and the most common is the Kuwait City, the capital and I also call it the centre of Kuwait. Its the only place where you will get to see high Skyscrapers and Huge companies than any other in the country. And to be honest the only people you ll see are Indians 😀. Apart from there are others from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Philippines.
So if we talk about the food then there’s everything I you ll find. Here Kuboos is very Common, it is roti made with wheat flour or all purpose flour. Before, kuboos was more familiar for malayalees who had a Middle East connection. But now it is in for everyone. Given here is an easy to make recipe. Khubz is usually baked in hot oven, but here we are going to prepare it in a flat non-stick pan.
I have been to Salmiya city and I think its the place where lots of Goans live. There are malls, hotels, beach and a big park where its called a Salmiya Garden. It’s always been fun if you have close friends or relatives Staying here. My day Starts and it’s like Eat Sleep Work Repeat and it goes on. About holidays compared to India is less but the number of leaves is more that what I get in India. 3 Days Hala February, 3 days Ramadan Eid, and few days back I got 5 days off on Bakra Eid.
One of the best things about living in Kuwait is you will find ‘n’ number of Super Cars, definitely I’m a fan of Super cars. Ferrari, Porsche, Chevrolet (Camaro) you name it. I have made a Collection of pics of Supercars I have seen here. 🙌
But there’s a lot to explore yet, I haven’t yet visited The Kuwait Towers some beaches yet and I still have 1.5 months….Cheers ! 💜
Its been 3 months since I have been working in Kuwait. To be honest during Summer temperature can crossed above 50° C and in Winter to as low as 0 . Today as usual I got up at 4:30 am got ready as usual so I could reach at work before 6:00am. My roommate is always the first one to leave the room every time, I got a call from him after minutes he left as I never expect anybody’s phone call so early, He told that there’s a Sandstorm and told to Close the Window before leaving as it is open most of the time.
As soon as I stepped out of my Camp, I saw a people covered their face with white cloth. It was difficult to recognise because everything was blurry with Sand, unluckily there’s no Shuttle to drop us to the Unit in the morning since the temperature was normal .
The dust is so thin that even if you are passing through it your eyes will not be itching and feels like its a smoke. Whenever the trailers or Cars passed by the road the sand follows it forming a small tornado or like a Water which splashes when the car passes on it. Its just a 7 minutes walk From my camp and that feeling when you finally enter the unit ! So as the day passed and the shift got over, there was a clear view of buildings and other factories. Sandstorm in Kuwait is normal, it usually happens once in a month and can last upto days. I always start a day with sunshine, but as told this day repeats getting my mood spoiled.
