Is threads just twitter

Since Twitter got less user-friendly after Elon Musk took it over, this new platform of Mark Zuckerberg can be like breathing fresh air after a while. The truth is that all the issues that were happening with Twitter actually opened space for a new product and Zuckerberg used this opportunity wisely. Some techies also call this app a ‘Twitter Killer’. As this is a platform for smooth public conversations, which is what Twitter has been doing all these years so we cannot say that this app is not a ‘Twitter Killer’, and once you sign in you will find it very similar to Twitter.

Key differences between twitter and threads

To sign up for this app you need an already have Instagram account, and you can import your information from Instagram to thread. At the same time, Twitter only requires a phone number or email address and is not linked to any social media platform. Currently, threads are only available for Android and iOS devices, which means you can only use Threads on smartphones and tablets and can’t use it on PCs but Twitter has no such restrictions. Meta promised a 500-character limit for threads but on Twitter’s character limit is 280 words. In threads, users can upload five-minute videos with limited options while Twitter has personalized recommendations and trending topics on its home page. Twitter offers a separate tab to view other profiles which is absent in Threads. ‘Threads’ allows users to interact with a wider community than Instagram, which is one of its major advantages.

Does ‘threads’ have a future?

This app can be a headache for Elon Musk but that does not mean Threads has guaranteed success. ‘Threads’ now is at its initial success, which is what many apps had celebrated in their early stages. Capturing younger audience will not be that easy, in that case, threads has the advantage that it is associated with Instagram. A lot of famous people have already signed up for this app and many did share their first post on ‘Threads’. One issue that most Twitter users must be facing now is you can’t take your Twitter users with you. Many Twitter users spent years on it to achieve a large number of followers and losing that will not be that easy for them. On the other hand, Threads has all the chances to become a successful text-based conversational app. Reach out to us, the best web development company in Kerala for more informative tech-related updates.
