How to sign up to Threads


Introducing Threads, Meta’s alternative to Twitter.

On July 6, Meta launched this new standalone app designed specifically for “sharing text updates and participating in public conversations.” It essentially offers the same functionality as Twitter did before its acquisition by owner and CEO Elon Musk, who subsequently made controversial decisions to aggressively promote the paid Twitter Blue subscription.

Developed by the Instagram team and directly linked to your Instagram account, Threads enables users to create posts of up to 500 characters, which may include links, photos, GIFs, and videos up to five minutes long.

Threads is now available for download on iOS and Android devices in over 100 countries. Astonishingly, it amassed a staggering 10 million sign-ups within its initial seven hours. If you wish to join this growing community, here’s a guide on how to sign up.

However, it’s crucial to note that if you decide to create a Threads account and later choose to delete it, Meta will also delete your Instagram account along with it.

How to sign up to Threads

Here’s a step-by-step process on how to sign up for Threads:

  1. Download the Threads app from the App Store (for iPhone) or Google Play Store ( for Android).
  2. Once the installation is complete, tap on the Threads icon to open the app.

  4. If you are not already signed into the Instagram app, tap on “Log in with Instagram” at the bottom, and enter your Instagram account credentials to sign in. After logging in, you will be redirected back to the Threads app.
  5. If you have multiple Instagram accounts and want to sign in with a different one, tap on “Switch accounts” at the bottom. From there, select the desired Instagram account. If you don’t see the account you want to use, tap on “Log in to another Instagram account” and enter the login details for that account.
