1. Threads is already a reality: Meta launches new app and they are already calling it The Twitter Killer 🐦‍⬛.

We recently talked about Threads📢, the app that Meta was finalising to fill the space left vacant by Twitter after being bought by Elon Musk 🚽.

Threads went public this week and the reactions have not parado🗣️. As we have told you during this time, there have been other apps that have wanted to position themselves 🚩 as a social network for content and open conversations, taking over the space left by Twitter🙋🏻‍♂️.

Mastodon🐘, for example, reinforced this positioning as the "new Twitter" thanks to the mess-ups of Musk🤦🏻‍♀️**, achieving a much higher popularity than would have been expected had it not been for the changes, layoffs and instability of Twitter🫨.

In addition to competitors, Twitter has ex-employees who hold a grudge 😠 against the company (especially its new owner). Hence several ex-Twitters, founded Spill ☕️🫖, which has already been nº1 in downloads. Revenge is served cold in the Stores🥶.

Now Meta is launching Threads, but unlike Mastodon or Spill, it has all the power that Zuckerberg wanted to give it🫡. In addition to virtually unlimited funds, it has a monthly active user database of 2 billion🔋.

In fact, Threads will be closely tied to Instagram; registration associated with the IG account and ability to import all content📚. This allows creators to not have to start from scratch when joining a new channel, speeding up expansión⏱️.

For now, it's available for iOS and Android in over 20 countries, of course at USA🇺🇸, but not in Europe yet due to regulatorias🙅🏻‍♂️, although it won't take long to land, but we leave you with an alternative way to try it out if you have an Android📲.

👉🏻 Here is the news about the launch of Threads and see what it looks like inside👀.

👉🏻 Here to try the app on your Android before it arrives at Europa🥷🏼.

2. Colvin closes €6M round and seeks new CEO to cross the threshold of profitability 🌸.

Colvin is the company that managed to digitise and simplify the purchase of flowers 🌺 and plants 🪴 worldwide. Something that seems simple, but not es☝🏼.

The Catalan startup, a candidate to become a Unicorn 🦄 for some time now, managed to raise €45M in 2021. The results have accompanied them, but not in the expected forecasts. Even so, the overall balance is positive 👏🏼 **and now they want to stabilise growth and enter a stage of madurez👨🏻.** For this, the founders and CEOs, Sergi Bastardas and Andrés Cester, have begun to **implement actions that pursue profitability and balance ⚖️, reducing fixed costs and focusing on the customer final🛍️. **Aware that their profile is that of a founder, they are now looking for a new CEO 🧑🏻‍💼 (without haste) to lead the path to profitability that is already underway💰.This new €6M investment round will allow them to strengthen the B2C customer and continue with a growth that is now sustainable and rentable👌🏼.

3. Airbnb will implement AI to offer you your perfect accommodation🤖🧳.

November and May. Following its usual policy of launching 2 new features per year, Airbnb has marked these two months to launch something that changes everything 🌬️. For November there is talk of small changes in Airbnb, but for May, its CEO talks about profound changes focused on AI💥.

Brian Chesky, CEO of Airbnb, retains a close relationship with Sam Altman, CEO of Openai from his time at Y Combinator🧢**. Now, Chesky has explained his plans for implementing AI at Airbnb, for example, helping 📞 customer service agents locate the best response in the shortest possible time 👓.

But the jewel in the crown 👑, in terms of value for usuario👩🏻‍💻, is to implement a concierge service 💁🏻 (concierge/assistant/butler) that helps the user to locate the ideal destination and accommodation by answering a few questions🤖😍.

We'll have to wait until May 2024, but the announcement of a completely different Airbnb, with AI at the heart of the experience🤖, sounds so good that we've marked it on our calendar 📆 so we don't miss it.

👉🏻 Here is the news with Brian Chesky's statements on AI x Airbnb 🙌🏼 (in English).
