The Threads application is the newly introduced social media app by Meta which is the parent company of popular social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. The Threads application is a direct competitor of the world’s most favourite microblogging platform Twitter as it offers users to share text along with images videos and GIFs.
It is worth mentioning that the Threads application is missing many features which we have on Twitter like hashtags, trending topics, and messaging capability among others. Having said that, the developers of the social media application have promised to bring those features very soon. Moreover, the latest Threads app is also very easy to set up as you can use your existing Instagram account details to get on the board and the application will also enable you to import your bio along with profile image from Instagram to Threads app. But there is a major disadvantage to the Threads application as it will not enable you to delete your account, and if you delete the account then you will lose your Instagram account as well.
The company has promised to fix this problem and it will make a setup that will keep both applications separate. However, we don’t have any information about the availability of that particular capability at the moment of time. So now let’s talk about the topic which we are going to deal with in this article.
