Meta’s Threads ranks fifth on App Store in China despite country’s ban on Meta services

  • Meta’s Twitter substitute, Threads, has made it to the top 5 apps on China’s App Store even though Meta does not do business in China.
  • China prohibits access to Meta services like Facebook, Whatsapp, and Instagram, which are usually accessed in the nation using VPN tools.
  • Still accessible, it’s anticipated China’s government will demand Apple remove Threads from the App Store, a frequent protocol for software in conflict with Chinese regulations.
