Say more with Threads — Instagram’s text-based conversation app.

Threads is where communities come together to discuss everything from the topics you care about today to what’ll be trending tomorrow. Whatever it is you’re interested in, you can follow and connect directly with your favorite creators and others who love the same things — or build a loyal following of your own to share your ideas, opinions and creativity with the world.

A few things you can do on Threads…

■ Access your Instagram followers
Your Instagram username and verification badge are reserved for you. Automatically follow the same accounts you follow on Instagram in a few taps, and discover new accounts too.

■ Share your point of view
Spin up a new thread to express what's on your mind. This is your space to be yourself, and you control who can reply.

■ Connect with friends and your favorite creators
Jump to the replies to get in on the action and react to commentary, humor and insight from the creators you know and love. Find your community and connect with people who care about whatever it is you’re interested in.

■ Control the conversation
Customize your settings and use controls to manage who can see your content, reply to your threads, or mention you. Accounts you’ve blocked will carry over from Instagram, and we’re enforcing the same Community Guidelines to help ensure everyone interacts safely and authentically.

■ Find ideas and inspiration
From TV recommendations to career advice, get answers to your questions or learn something new from crowd-sourced conversations, thought leaders and industry experts.

■ Never miss a moment
Stay on top of the latest trends and live events. Whether it’s about new music, movie premieres, sports, games, TV shows, fashion, or the latest product releases, find discussions and receive notifications any time your favorite profiles start a new thread.

■ Open social networking – coming soon
In the future, there will be ways to discover more content and reach wider audiences: we are planning features that allow you to search for, follow and interact with users on open, interoperable social networks that we believe can shape the future of the internet.

Seems cool so far

Seems cool so far, although perhaps would be good for the feeds to show only those who I follow. Or topics I'm interested in. Also to have a feature where I can bookmark/save threads into personalised collections/categories like in Instagram - that would be da bom & I'd see myself & others using the app daily if this feature is made available.

Suggestion for certain features

I love this Thread, it’s giving me pure and clean app, another version of that bluebird apps. Anyways i would love if u add certain features like - “bookmark” or maybe can change to “Saved” thingy like what u did to Instagram.

Add on the feature where we can view our “likes”, and it is exclusively only for the user, not to its followers. Also, please add on the feature where the thread view based on people we follow, not from some random users on my Timeline. Plsss 😭

Pls make sure this platform is free from 18sx content or whatever seggsual related post. Make it virgin from any kinda dirty minded content. Thank you 🩷

There’s things I hope to see in the future updates

I think the app layout is cute and clean but i just think that it lacks something, connection maybe?

I wish there was a trending page or current topic page, so that it became way more interactive.. i hope to see this being added next

I like that it doesn’t show what threads we liked on our page (I always find it annoying to see tweets that i liked on my twitter page) so let’s keep it like that.
