The White House Chooses Threads as a New Social Media Platform

The White House has made its entrance onto Threads, the social media platform created by Meta (the parent company of Facebook and Instagram), which is widely seen as a competitor to X (formerly known as Twitter).

Official White House accounts for President Biden, first lady Jill Biden, Vice President Harris, and second gentleman Doug Emhoff have been launched on Threads. Additionally, the Biden administration has also created a Spanish language account, LaCasaBlanca, on the platform.

According to a White House official, the launch on Threads has been in the works for several weeks and is viewed as “an additional way we can communicate with the American people about this administration’s historic actions.”

Prior to this announcement, the White House publicly denounced Elon Musk, the owner of X, after he seemingly expressed support for an antisemitic conspiracy theory.

Musk responded to a user on X who blamed Jews for the rise in online antisemitism, stating that “you have said the actual truth.” The White House condemned Musk’s comments, calling them “abhorrent promotion of antisemitic and racist hate.”

When asked if the White House was considering leaving X due to Musk’s comments, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre emphasized that the administration would continue to condemn “hateful” and “dangerous” comments but did not provide a direct answer.

A White House official stated that the decision to join Threads was made independently of any other social media platform activity.

Meanwhile, X has filed a lawsuit against the left-leaning nonprofit organization Media Matters and writer Eric Hananoki over a report they published about antisemitism on the platform.

The report highlighted major companies whose advertisements appeared next to pro-Nazi posts on X, leading to some companies withdrawing their advertising. Furthermore, data obtained by The Washington Post indicates that the number of active posters on X has decreased by over 30%.
