Instagram’s Twitter Rival ‘Threads’ to Launch on July 6th

Meta-owned Instagram will release a Twitter alternative app ‘Threads’ on Thursday, Jul. 6.

The new social media app is listed on Apple’s App Store and according to the listing, the app will be available for download on Jul. 6.

The listing also describes ‘Threads’ as a ‘text-based conversation app’.

The app is also described as a place “where communities come together to discuss everything from the topics you care about today to what’ll be trending tomorrow.”

Screenshots from the app on the listing suggest that Instagram users will be able to log into the app with their login details from Instagram.

Threads has a similar user interface to Twitter including features like reposting, liking, and allowing users to limit the people who can respond to their posts.

Threads will be launched in competition with Twitter alongside BlueSky and Mastadon.
