Threads is a new Meta app that has some of the same features as Twitter. Threads lets people share text and pictures, have conversations in real time, and fight directly with Twitter.

Twitter is slowly losing users because people are worried about the new rules that Elon Musk is putting in place. Given this drop, the new Threads app is likely to become more popular. Mark Zuckerberg, who runs the company, says that 10 million people signed up for the app in the first seven hours after it came out.

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg said after the app’s presentation, “The idea behind Threads is to make a friendly public space where people can talk.” “We want to take what Instagram does best and make a new experience based on text, ideas, and talking about what you’re thinking.”

The platform’s interface looks like the comments part of Instagram, but it has all the features of Twitter. This means that you can reply to posts and share them again. Each letter and link can have up to 500 characters. Users can also add up to 10 photos or movies that are no longer than five minutes each. Instagram accounts that have been checked will keep their blue badge in Threads.

When you sign up for the new Meta app and go back to your Instagram page, you’ll see a unique Threads badge on your bio. This badge is a temporary signal to your fans that you are in the app, so they can easily find you and follow you there. There are also some tools on Threads that you can’t find on Twitter. Find out more about them below.

The 6 most important changes between Threads and Twitter:

1. To use Threads, you need an Instagram account

You don’t need to use any other app to use Twitter, but to use Threads, you do need an Instagram account. IG users can easily sign up for the app by using their current IG accounts. If you already have an account for the Photos app, your username and other important details will be moved over to the new app automatically.

2. The number of words

Each thread will only be able to have 500 characters. Twitter users who aren’t verified can only use a maximum of 280 characters. Elon Musk’s social network has a paid feature that costs $8 a month and lets users raise their character limit to 25,000. Meta, on the other hand, has not yet added a similar feature.

3. Look at the app

With the help of hashtags, Twitter is one of the best ways to find out what people are talking about right now. On the other hand, the only way to look at material in Threads is to scroll through the home feed.

4. How long the videos are

Users, even ones who haven’t been verified, can post movies on Threads that are up to five minutes long. But on Twitter, people who don’t have the blue verified badge can only post movies that are up to 2 minutes and 20 seconds long.

5. Can’t see my list of likes

On Twitter, you can see who liked a certain tweet, but on Threads, you can’t see what other people liked.

7. Don’t put ads in threads

So far, there have been no ads on Threads. But you can see ads on Twitter.
