What Is Meta’s New Threads App and Its Features?

If you are a Twitter user, then you are probably aware of how glitchy the app has been. After Elon Musk’s highly publicised takeover of Twitter, there was a lot of promise that needed fulfilling. However, it hasn’t gone as smoothly as some may have wanted. The app has often crashed, introduced features that have not been popular, and the overall experience has also taken a hit.

Sensing the right opportunity, Meta’s Mark Zuckerberg has recently launched the Threads app. Threads is somewhat similar to Twitter, but again, it has the differences that set it apart from the Bird app.

What is Meta’s new Threads app?

Go to the official announcement website of Threads and you will see a large text greeting you with: ‘A new way to share with text.’ Threads aim to take what Instagram already is the best in the world at and share it over to the text platform.

The similarities between Threads and Twitter start coming to light when you see both apps allow users to post text, images, videos, etc. However, Threads focuses more on close relationships. In fact, with Threads, you can only share your texts with those whom you follow.

In addition, your Instagram followers get carried over onto Threads. Therefore, you won’t have to go through the additional ordeal of having a whole new social media platform and building your followers or following count from zero.
