Threads uses ActivityPub, a decentralized social media protocol that is also used by Mastodon. This means that the app’s content is available across multiple servers. Making it more difficult for any one party to control or censor the content.

The service has a webpage, but it does not offer much information yet. There is no login page or any other useful information. But this may change once the app is officially available. It is unclear how successful Threads will be, but it will be interesting to see how it performs against Twitter.

Twitter has faced criticism for its handling of misinformation and hate speech, prompting some users to look for alternatives. Threads may provide a viable alternative, especially for those who are already using Instagram.

In conclusion, Threads is an upcoming social networking app from Meta that will compete with Twitter. It is in marketing as an Instagram app and allows users to sign up using their Instagram accounts. The app offers threads for better user engagement and uses ActivityPub. It will be interesting to see how Threads performs once it is officially available on July 6.
