Introducing Threads: The Text-Based App to Stay Connected

Meta has recently launched Threads, a new app aiming to compete with Twitter. Threads is a text-based platform that encourages engaging conversations. Wondering if you should jump on board? Here are some key points to consider:

  1. Seamless Integration: Signing up for Threads is effortless as you can log in using your existing Instagram account. Your Instagram username and verification will carry over, and you'll have the option to customize your Threads profile.
  2. Expanded Network: When you join Threads, your Instagram followers and those you follow will be automatically notified about your presence on the platform. This helps you quickly build your Threads network.
  3. Media-Rich Posts: Threads allows you to create posts up to 500 characters long, accompanied by links, photos, and videos up to 5 minutes in length. This feature enhances your ability to share content in diverse formats.
  4. Easy Sharing: Seamlessly share your Threads posts to your Instagram story or distribute them as links on other platforms, extending your content's reach beyond Threads.

However, there are some factors to be aware of:

  1. User Decline: Although Threads generated substantial buzz during its launch, its daily active users significantly dropped from 49 million two days after launch to just over 9.6 million by Aug. 1, as reported by Gizmodo. Engagement has also decreased since the app's early days.

Considering these factors, should you join Threads?


  • Notification Advantage: If you have been eagerly anticipated on Threads by your followers or audience, joining now will trigger notifications for them.
  • Early Adoption: Being an early adopter of a new platform can sometimes offer an advantage as it may grow and evolve over time.


  • Limited Features: Threads lacks certain features such as scheduling or measuring reach. Also, managing multiple accounts, like personal and brand accounts, might not be as seamless as desired.
  • Redundant Audience: As Threads and Instagram share a similar user base, posting the same content on both platforms might lead to audience fatigue.

In conclusion, Threads is likely to evolve to stay relevant, but its current state may not suit everyone's needs. If you have an existing audience eagerly awaiting your presence on Threads, it might be worth joining. However, keep an eye on the app's development to see how it adapts to user feedback and market demands.
