The much-anticipated Twitter rival app, Threads, developed by Meta, has finally made its debut.
The platform is now accessible through its desktop site at Threads.net or by downloading the app on iOS and Android devices. In case of any issues, iOS users are advised to force quit the App Store and reopen it.
Threads is reactive product of twitter’s policies after Elon Musk took over the platform.
On Threads, users can create text-based posts with a maximum limit of 500 characters, as well as share photos and videos of up to five minutes in length. The app’s interface bears a resemblance to Twitter, featuring a minimalist design with options to like, comment, repost, and share threads. As Threads is closely integrated with Instagram, users can log in using their Instagram usernames and easily follow the same individuals they already follow on the popular photo-sharing platform.
Similar to Instagram, the main feed on Threads presents a combination of recommended content and posts from users that one follows. However, unlike Twitter’s ability to switch between recommended and following-only content streams, Threads currently lacks such an option.
