Instagram’s new Threads app looks like it might be successful. Mark Zuckerberg mentioned that the app has greater than 30 million signups as of Thursday morning, and people who find themselves checking it out are posting… er, threading… rather a lot, too. In accordance with inside knowledge I’ve seen, customers have already posted greater than 95 million threads (or tweets, relying on who you ask) and dropped about 190 million likes.
All that has occurred in lower than 24 hours. The app launched Wednesday night on iOS and Android (considerably sooner than the unique Thursday launch time), and rather a lot of individuals are checking it out; it’s at the moment the highest free app on the App Retailer.
There’s nonetheless rather a lot lacking from Threads. You’ll be able to’t delete your Threads account with out deleting your Instagram account, for instance, and the app doesn’t have options like DMs, a reverse-chronological following feed, or a deliberate integration with the decentralized ActivityPub protocol. However these launch numbers level to a promising begin for Meta’s new Twitter competitor — now, we’ll have to attend and see if folks stick round.
