Recently, Instagram Threads have been buzzing nonstop! Developers saw the perfect opportunity (Twitter’s downfall) and went ahead and curated the much-needed platform for all the frustrated users of the Bird app. So if you are looking for Threads Web App Download guidelines, then keep reading!
In this article, I have written everything we know about Threads so far!
What are Threads?
Threads is an Instagram-based networking site that lets you create up to 500 character posts. Additionally, you can even upload pictures and videos that are about 5 minutes long. In all honesty, the interface of Threads is nearly similar to Twitter.
And that’s because it was curated around the period when Twitter was going through a downfall. Plus, given the popularity of Twitter, no wonder competitors grabbed the first golden opportunity to replace the Bird app.
So, just like Twitter, Threads lets you share Threads, like, post, repost, and comment. It’s the best place to find or build a community based on similar interests.
In fact, while talking to The Verge, Adam Mosseri (Instagram’s head) openly admitted it.
He said, “Obviously, Twitter pioneered the space… but just given everything that was going on, we thought there was an opportunity to build something that was open and something that was good for the community that was already using Instagram.”
The best part is… if you have an Instagram account, then you can use the same credentials to sign into the Threads stand-alone application.

Threads are indeed available on the App Store of both Android and iOS devices.
