Threads app

A collection of stories to recap some of the most major events of 2023
Threads app

In early July Instagram launched and announced their new app that looked to compete on the level that X (formerly Twitter) was operating at. This is an app where you can post threads, reply to others, and follow profiles of the people you are interested in. Threads aims to offer users a friendly environment to interact with one another. Finding people and friends to follow on the app is a similar process to any other social media app, expect for the fact that members on Threads will also need an Instagram account to sign up for Threads. The app was created by a team at Instagram for the purpose of replicating the positive sharing experiences on Instagram and translating that over to a new, text-based platform. Upon its launch date on July 5th it quickly surpassed 150 million downloads on the app store, which made it to date the most successful launch of a social media platform in history.
