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.

Instagram, Inc. released v310.0 for Threads, an Instagram app 4 days ago and here's their update message:
We’re working fast to regularly update our app. To experience the newest features and improvements, download the latest version of the app.
This is such a stupid app. A social media app inside a social media app… it’s like how restaurants will have “ghost” kitchens. Different menu made with the same ingredients as the original kitchen. Basically, it’s twitter “x” inside Instagram… why… just why
This isn't helpful.
These missing features are stopping me from using Threads: #1) Search: I want to be able to search for words and topics, not just users. #2) Desktop website / web app: I want to use Threads on my laptop. #3) Drafts: I want to be able to draft a Thread or Reply. #4) Scheduling: I want to be able to send a Thread or Reply at a later date and time.
The last thing the world needs is more twitter clones that provide literally nothing new to the experience.
There is just so much garbage on your feed. Good luck if you are just starting this app, because the chances of seeing anyone you follow will be drowned out by the other 95% of the content that’s force-fed to you on your feed. Bring back the old Twitter because this ain’t it.

Jay wright app
Racist and homophobic comments and posts stay up, but speaking out against racism and homophobia will get you either shadow banned or restricted and your comments removed. I started seeing complaints from the people I was following about the situation, and then it started happening to me. they had me convinced for a while, but it’s no different than anything else out there. It is not a viable alternative to Twitter, as sad as that is to say out loud.
Just a carbon copy of X that adds nothing new to the social media landscape. I don’t need another app in my life.
