Threads: Millions of People Joined the New ‘Twitter’ by Meta


Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, stated that the newly released Threads app attracted ten million users within the first seven hours after it was made available to the public. According to some experts, Twitter users who are dissatisfied with recent updates to the platform may be interested in using Threads. But what exactly is Threads, and why may using it be a more enjoyable experience than using Twitter?

Users are permitted to send messages of up to 500 characters on Threads, and the platform has many features with Twitter. Zuckerberg said:

It’ll take some time, but I think there should be a public conversations app with 1 billion+ people on it. Twitter has had the opportunity to do this but hasn’t nailed it. Hopefully, we will.

Downloading Threads is now accessible in over one hundred countries, including the United Kingdom, although they are not currently available in the European Union due to regulatory issues. The potential quantity of data that the app may utilize has been criticized by competitors. Based on the Apple App Store, this may contain information about a user’s health, finances, and browsing habits in addition to their identities.

Despite the fact that Threads is a stand-alone application, users sign in with their Instagram credentials. Their Instagram username will follow them over to Threads, but they will have the choice to modify their profile so that it is more suitable for Threads.

According to Meta, users will also have the option to select to follow the same profiles on Meta as they do on Instagram. Users using the app are able to maintain their anonymity on Instagram while participating in public discussions on Threads.

Posts on Threads may be posted to Instagram, and posts on Instagram can be shared to Threads. Posts on Threads can include links, photographs, and clips of up to five minutes in length. What are your thoughts?

It is also able to stop following, ban, limit, or report other users’ profiles, and any accounts that a user blocks on Instagram are likewise blocked on Threads.
