As a Meta product, Threads already has a potential user base from another popular application, namely Instagram.
This is believed to be one of the things that can make Threads big like Instagram or other Meta products.
It is proven, based on the BBC report, as many as 10 million users have registered for the Threads application within seven hours after Meta released the new application.
Broadly speaking, Threads and Twitter have a mission to meet the needs of users with different preferences or tendencies.
Based on the explanation on the TheNextDroid page, Twitter has fast and real-time characteristics so that users can make short updates while following trending topics and engaging in public conversation.
On the other hand, Threads, which in practice will be connected to Instagram, focuses more on personal communication and intimate connections.
