Meta, the social media giant behind platforms like Instagram and Facebook has released its text-based Twitter competitor called Threads.

The highly-anticipated app will make its debut on Wednesday night, offering users a new way to engage with online communities.

With Elon Musk’s recent announcement that Twitter would be temporarily limiting the number of tweets users can read, there has been a surge in interest towards alternative platforms. Competing apps like Bluesky, supported by Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, witnessed a significant increase in traffic as a result.

While Bluesky remains in an invite-only beta phase, Meta’s Threads appears to be accessible to a wider audience. As long as users have an Instagram account, they can use Threads without any additional restrictions.

The app is scheduled to launch in the United States at 7 p.m. ET on Wednesday, according to the Threads update page. However, users in the European Union may have to wait a bit longer for access.

How To Join Threads

For those eager to get ahead and secure an invitation to Threads, here’s a simple guide:

  1. Open the Instagram app and search for “Threads” in the Explore page by tapping the magnifying glass icon in the bottom left corner.
  2. Once you’ve typed “Threads” into the search bar, keep an eye out for a small ticket emoji that appears on the far right. Tap the “Admit One” ticket.
  3. Your Threads invitation should now be visible. It will include your username, the launch date and time of Threads, a QR code, a numeric code, and a “Get Threads” button. Tapping the button will take you to the App Store, although the app itself is not available for download just yet.
  4. If you don’t see a ticket appear in the search bar, you can alternatively access the invitation by clicking the three horizontal lines located in the top right corner of your Instagram profile. A drop-down menu will appear, and you can click the “Threads” option near the top to view your invite.

At present, your Threads username is the same as your Instagram username. It remains unclear whether it will be possible to change it, but users can expect more information once the app officially launches on Wednesday.
