You are the one person who knew Threads.com existed, what did (Slack competitor) before Meta’s Threads.net.

If I owned Threads.com on an active business I'd gladly rebrand for a few million bucks! They also own a registered trademark for THREADS so Meta better open their digital wallet REALLY wide.
If I was the owner of threads.com ,I will not sell it, as it will attract visitors at zero cost because of the .com .
