Little is known about the application that Facebook’s parent company will launch this week, but there is already talk that it could be the direct rival of Twitter, just after months of scandals in the operation and corporate body of the blue bird platform. Threads will be directly linked to Instagram and its users will be able to link the information between both social networks.
Meta continues to expand and the famous WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook block will soon be joined by an application that aims to imitate Twitter.
It is already presented as a “text-based conversation application” in which you can experience microblogging, very similar to the application owned by Elon Musk.
And despite the fact that the official launch will be next Thursday, July 6, in the Apple user store (App Store), you can already see a list of functions and attributes of the application, among them: health and well-being, purchases , financial information and location.
“Threads is where communities come together to discuss everything from the topics you care about today to what’s trending tomorrow. Whatever you’re into, you can follow and connect directly with your favorite creators and others who love the same things, or build your own loyal following. to share your ideas, opinions and creativity with the world”, is read in the same wall of the store.
Threads, which translates “threads” in Spanish, also caused controversy for Twitter executives, since in their social network it is common for publications to be linked to one another; a practice that is socially known as threading, or making a thread of publications.
Meta declined to comment on the app, while Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey tweeted “all your threads belong to us,” Musk responded to this tweet with a “yes.”
On top of this, the arrival of this platform could be yet another headache for billionaire Elon Musk, who bought Twitter last year for $44 billion and has been making changes that have baffled advertisers and discouraged users. including new daily limits on the number of tweets people can see.
And it is precisely in this scenario that could provide a clear path for Threads, since in addition to imitating Twitter, it will allow users to link their information with Instagram, allowing Internet users to keep their username and even the people they follow, without the need to start from scratch.
