About Threads
Threads currently isn’t available to everyone.
Threads is an app from Instagram where you can post threads, reply to others and follow profiles you’re interested in. Threads and replies can include short pieces of text, links, photos, videos or any combination of them.
People can also follow you to see your threads and replies in their feeds and from your profile. Who can see your posts is determined by your profile’s privacy setting. People can reply to your posts to add to the discussion or like, share, quote or repost your content. Anyone who has an Instagram account can create a Threads profile.

Reply to a thread

Who can see your posts is determined by your profile’s privacy setting. You can also like, share or repost a thread.
