Threads by Meta is the new social media platform released by Meta, which aims to rival another social media platform, Twitter. This is the new app that uses your username from your Instagram account.
After Elon Musk took control of Twitter, the social media platform has been unhinged, and many people are living on it.
Mark Zuckerberg, who is the founder of Facebook and Parent company Meta, has not liked the demeanor of the Twitter boss. The pair is so much against each other that they have even accepted fighting each other in the cage.
But at first, Meta wanted to defeat Twitter in the social media industry, as it released Threads to attract those people who like language-based social media like Twitter but are unhappy with the current changes made there.
So let’s get to know everything about Threads.
How will Threads by Meta rival Twitter?
Meta is the founder of several social media apps like Facebook and Instagram, and recently they launched another social media app to rival Twitter named Threads.
The new app is built by the Instagram developmental team, and you need your Instagram credentials to sign up. The main attraction of the new social media app is the ability to share updates through texts.

You can also share photos, videos, and links with your friends along with text up to 500 characters which were not possible in an Instagram.
Anyone who is under the age of 16 and, in some countries, under the age of 18 can join the app and start posting threads or follow the accounts.
Currently, it is only available in 100 countries, but the number is expected to rise significantly in recent days.
When and how was Threads by Meta launched?
Threads were started to develop by the makers of Instagram in January 2023, after the outrage caused by the use of Twitter by the new CEO, Elon Musk.
Many popular figures deactivated their accounts on Twitter and Instagram as a chance to create their own text-based social media application.
At first, the idea was to add an extra feature on Instagram that worked like Twitter, but it was later decided to make a completely separate application.
The name of the project was given P92, and after a few months, in June 2023, The Verge magazine teased that Meta was on the course to release something that was a “Response To Twitter.”
In early July, the Google Play Store started showing Project 92 as a thread, but at first, it was quickly removed.
However, on July 5, 2023, Meta officially launched Threads in the Google Play Store and announced it would be released a day later, on July 6th, in the Apple App Store.
How does Threads by Meta work?
After the launch of the social media app Threads, over 5 million people logged in to the app, including some very high-profile people.
Celebrities like Gordon Ramsey and Shakira are already in the app, whereas the Dalai Lama and others are also approached.
In terms of how Threads works, it is quite similar to Instagram. You have to download the app either via the Play Store or the App Store and then connect your Instagram account.
Now, immediately, you can scroll through Threads and start finding topics, people, or accounts. You will also see a reply, repost, or quote to the thread button where you can send your comments to the said threads.
You can also view the likes and comments status of the original thread along with yours. The current threads or comments consist of 500 characters, which is more than Twitter.
Currently, the thread is very slick and easier to read; however, the privacy filter is not working, as you can see threads from pages or accounts you do not follow.
There is no doubt that the goal of Thread is to compete with and even win against Twitter by making it more regulatory and controllable.
Many users of Twitter have not liked the new unhinged work of Elon Musk, so it will be interesting to see if the decision may have caused the downfall of his company.
Netizens have mixed feelings about the launch of Threads by Meta
After the launch of Threads was announced, many people rushed to create their own accounts. Despite using the app for a short time, people are impressed with the interface and the mechanism by which it works.
However, others are not too impressed, as they are blaming the Meta company for stealing everyone else’s ideas and not having their own creative plan.

Furthermore, others have also accused Zuckerberg of trying to keep everything under his control and surveillance. One Twitter user commented, “I support Elon Musk and Twitter, not matrix-controlled Zuckerberg and Threads. Don’t become a slave.”
Nevertheless, it will be fascinating to see in the future if Thread can topple Twitter or if Twitter has already been a far superior social media app.

Alabama Barker is Travis Barker, the drummer of the rock band Blink-182, and his ex-wife Shanna Moakler’s daughter.
The 17-year-old’s Coachella 2023 weekend ended on a melancholy note as she shared a photo on Instagram late Sunday night on April 16, 2023, which appeared to convey a sense of sadness.
Although she was dressed up in a bodysuit, which could have been an attempt to strike a serious pose, the accompanying caption suggested that she was trying to communicate her gloomy feelings to her followers, along with her new relationship status — single.

It remains unclear when the pair split, but the fact that Barker spent the weekend at Coachella, where her father was performing with Blink-182 on Friday, has left some speculating whether the breakup happened during the event.
Perhaps the teenager had already ended the relationship before attending the festival but decided to announce it on social media after it ended.
Barker has managed to keep her romantic affairs out of the public eye despite maintaining an active social media presence, which is understandable, given her past experiences with older men.
Regardless of the circumstances, we hope that she is doing well and wish her the best.
