Micro Blogging platform Threads, developed by Instagram, had reached more than 2 million people within 2 hours of its launch on 6th July. The downloads of Threads reached 30 million in the morning of the next day. Its craze is so much that within a week, the number of Threads users surpassed ten crores. It is the all-time record for the popularity of any app. Earlier, this record was in the name of ChatGPT of OpenAI, but it took two months to reach this figure.

'Threads' is being seen as a direct challenge to Elon Musk's Twitter, given the features and method of working. It is developed by the Instagram app, but its focus is on working as a text update platform like Twitter. To get familiar with Threads, users need to log in to the Threads app with their Instagram account and then update any text with up to 500 words, photos and videos.

Threads-Instagram relation

The speciality of the Threads app is its smooth and easy use. You can search for the app from Google Play Store or Apple app store. Before downloading the app, it is significant to know that if the Instagram app is already installed on the device, you have to log in, and it will redirect you to sign up with the same login credentials. 

Steps to join Threads

  • Log in to the app with the credentials of the Instagram account.
  • It will take you to the profile page. Here is the link text box and import button at the bottom.
  • After this, choose the option to keep the account public or private; keep in mind that this will not affect the privacy setting of the Instagram account.
  • 'How Threads Work' will appear on the next screen. Click on agree and proceed by clicking on 'Join Threads'.
  • Your Threads account will be ready; you can post and follow others.
