Instagram’s Threads app - Introduction

What is Threads? Threads is Meta's text-based Twitter rival. It is tied to your Instagram account, so you can create an account by logging in using your Instagram credentials. 

 Threads is a spin-off app from Instagram that focuses on conversations rather than visual content. You can log in with your Instagram account and share text updates and join public discussions. The app resembles the Instagram comment section in its design, but offers the features of Twitter, such as replying and re-sharing posts. 

You can create posts with up to 500 characters (more than Twitter’s 280), links, up to 10 photos, and videos up to 5 minutes long. You can’t edit threads. Unlike Twitter, Threads does not seem to use hashtags and does not have a trending section. 

What are some features of the Instagram Threads App? There are unique features that differentiate between Twitter and Instagram and even other Meta-owned platforms. A launch teaser of the app shows the search bar displays a ticket symbol when you type "threads"(or any of a range of other phrases) into the search field. When you tap it, a spinning ticket with your Instagram username and a local launch time converted from 10 AM ET appears. After a particularly chaotic few days at its primary competitor Twitter, news of Threads’ debut will be surfaced.
