As you may have heard, Meta (owner of Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, and more) recently launched a new social media app called Threads. It is a text-focused conversation app aimed at competing with Twitter. Threads is under the Instagram branding and connects seamlessly with it, but yet it is a standalone app. Perception has been mixed. Some like the atmosphere, while others feel the app is mediocre. Whatever the case, Threads launched with missing features that Twitter has, yet, the new social media has accumulated tens of millions of signups.
Personally, I feel like Threads is a cool worthwhile competitor to Twitter. However, I’m unimpressed by the lacking innovation and the fact that it’s lacking features upon launch.
What are your thoughts?
