The much-anticipated "Threads" Twitter competitor from Meta has arrived. The Instagram-connected app, whose development began in January, was released at a difficult time for Twitter.

Elon Musk and the new CEO Linda Yaccarino have made numerous improvements to the bird app. Users of the app have now been subject to a rate cap that restricts how much they may read on the platform.

Following this change, users can now download Instagram's new Threads app. Users can publish content on Threads with up to 500 characters. Users are permitted to contribute up to five minutes of video, images, or links. According to Meta, users may "easily share a Threads post to your Instagram story, or share your post as a link on any other platform you choose." The app is connected to your Instagram account.

The Google Play Store or the Apple software Store both offer free downloads of the software. After installation, using the app is rather simple, especially if you're familiar with Twitter and Instagram. You may follow users from Instagram on Threads by simply logging in with your Instagram credentials.

You'll be prompted to choose between keeping your account private and public after you establish one. You'll see posts from both native Threads users and individuals you've followed on Instagram on your feed.

Just like Twitter, you can block out specific words in the settings and decide who can mention you.

Using Threads

-> Make sure you have an Instagram account

-> While your Instagram username will be automatically registered, you can change it

-> Users can unfollow, report, block or restrict a profile - just like on Instagram and Twitter

-> Users can choose to start from scratch on Threads or import their following list and personal details to Threads

-> Below every Threads post are the options to like, comment, repost, and share - stock features of Twitter

Any users that are blocked on your Instagram app will also be blocked on Threads.
