Threads might run into some moderation issues when it integrates with ActivityPub.

Alex Stamos, Facebook’s former security chief, points out that the integration could make it more difficult for Meta to put a stop to “spammers, troll farms, and economically driven abusers” due to the way the decentralized social networking protocol is set up.

Threads may also face issues when complying with data regulation policies around the globe, many of which grant users the right to delete their data. As explained by Stamos, ActivityPub “has the ability to tell other servers to delete content but no mechanism to enforce.”
