We can surely say, software applications let that be any genre have changed our lives. Social media apps are always in the race to bring something different quarterly. In recent, a new chat-based rival app has been launched by none other than  Meta Platforms. MP already owns Facebook and Instagram, and this new addition is to be checked and proven over time. We are excited to see what vision Mark has for this app, let’s check an introduction to threads.

In today’s post, we are going to check out what is thread, the features of thread, and if it can replace Twitter. without further due, let’s begin.

What is Thread?

Thread is a text-based social media app offered by Meta platforms. It is a new social media app where you can interact with your Instagram followers and discover more in textual format. The vision with Thread is that they wanted a separate text-based app where you take Instagram users in a Twitter-like format. Thread is launched on 5 July 2023 and has around 100 million users within its first week breaking chatgpt’s count.

Since the app launched the controversy erupted with Twitter. The app is seen to be a direct rival of Twitter for which the Twitter team has filed legal action for using Twitter tactics to build the app. There is indeed an Instagram app to discover new content and much more however threads are for those users who feel comfortable using Twitter, and Reddit but wanted to use something else. Currently, the app is available for both Android and iOS. You can install apps for Android here and for iOS here.

Features of thread

1) Threads app is built by Instagram to give users new experiences in a textual-based format.

2) The app has 500 character limit which is an added bonus since other platforms like Twitter support up to 280.

3) Threads app is going to support interoperable social networks, which means the users of Threads would be able to share information easily with other social media platforms that support interoperability. It is basically multiple systems being able to exchange information without major restrictions.

4) Uses Instagram login to sign in to Threads and discover new trends.

5)You can share ideas, and ask for suggestions, all that is possible using a text social media format.

6) Excellent alternative for those who don’t want to use other text-based apps like Twitter and Reddit.

Can Thread replace Twitter?

Twitter has become a platform where brands share new information, new conversations take place without interrupts. Though the Twitter policy has changed, users are habituated to Twitter since the platform is with us for a long time. The question is why use Threads when you have Twitter? Twitter currently has 353.90 million users and when we look at Instagram it’s above 600M which confirms how Instagram is making new space in the social media industry. The numbers might ski rocket when we group Facebook and Instagram numbers together.

Meta platform can easily give competition to Twitter. Hypothetically, this can be done by porting the users of all of their owned social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook to one platform. The same approach seems to have been followed here in the case of Threads. Though the users count registration is higher than ever for any app in the past, this does not change the fact that it is going to take some time to evolve and make its own place.

The other point that is worth noting is that as time passes, its value also grows up. Consider Google which is single-sidedly dominating the search engine market. For every browser we use, we ensure Google is its base engine. Twitter has the same level of brand value. Recently we have seen how Elone bought Tiwtter and what changes were made. No doubt that a wide range of users are not in favour of it but even with that Twitter is managing to keep up in the market. Let it be threads or any other text-based app, it wouldn’t make much difference unless the platform stays up for some time to prove what better it can provide.


It is all about the trend! We never knew musically video-sharing apps would be so famous that they would then end up becoming TikTok. New AI tools are already rocking the base. There are actually some text-based apps such as Quora, Reddit, and Devrant. Though their services are promising, it’s growing unhurried, and how we are pretty much positive about the Thread. This concludes with an introduction to Threads. What do you think about this Thread app, are you going to use it? do let us know in the comments section below.
