They probably have trends behind the scenes and are monitoring them. Probably didn’t want to include in the initial public release as they could potentially be embarrassing. Once they are confident trends are working well, I’m sure they will be released.
Honestly, a breath of fresh air from other options. I used to be heavy into Twitter, and do occasionally check it, but since it became such a binfire less so. Then the gram itself, but once people just started to post what they wanted others to see for likes, less that too.
Seems to have a really nice UI, and minimalist look and feel to it. I’m hoping it doesn’t just go the route of instagram where it forces reels and rubbish on you. If that happens I’ll be out.
One of my problems is that I’m not very into either instagram or Facebook… but then, I can’t see many people migrating from instagram to threads. Why would anyone on a photo sharing app, insta, suddenly decide that what they want is to move to a text app? Or maybe Meta make it easy to cross post between the two platforms? But I still have the problem that I follow lots of people on Twitter who aren’t on my fb/insta.
In the meantime, until there is real content, threads is clearly pumping the celeb stuff. I guess these commercial arrangements are also money making.
Become? This is a shameless Twitter clone from the start. The only question is whether it manages to emulate the good bits as well as the bad.
