Looks like Twitter has a run for its money because Facebook’s parent company Meta, just launched it’s own version of the app.

Yep – Facebook now has it’s own version of Twitter and it just launched today and already has over 5 million downloads just in the first 4 hours.


Mark Zuckerberg even confirmed this news posting saying:

“Just passed 5 million sign ups in the first four hours…”

DANG – that is a lot!

Meta’s new platform is called Threads and it’s literally about to put Twitter out of business.


Basically, it’s the hot new platform and people all over are creating accounts and posting as they would on Twitter.

At first look, I can’t help but notice the clean feel of Threads. It just seems refreshing (only time will tell though).

Once you login and create an account (which you can do by connecting and importing your Instagram account), you will see a screen that tells you How Threads Works:

According to Meta:

Your feed on Threads includes threads posted by people you follow, and recommended content from new creators you haven’t discovered yet. Posts can be up to 500 characters long and include links, photos, and videos up to 5 minutes in length. You can easily share a Threads post to your Instagram story, or share your post as a link on any other platform you choose. 

In addition, Meta said:

We built Threads with tools to enable positive, productive conversations. You can control who can mention you or reply to you within Threads. Like on Instagram, you can add hidden words to filter out replies to your threads that contain specific words. You can unfollow, block, restrict or report a profile on Threads by tapping the three-dot menu, and any accounts you’ve blocked on Instagram will automatically be blocked on Threads.

As with all our products, we’re taking safety seriously, and we’ll enforce Instagram’s Community Guidelines on content and interactions in the app. Since 2016 we’ve invested more than $16 billion in building up the teams and technologies needed to protect our users, and we remain focused on advancing our industry-leading integrity efforts and investments to protect our community.


Honestly, you just need to download it and give it a try yourself.

You can download Threads for iPhone here and Threads for Android Here.
