Instagram Threads is now official. A social media that arrives to become the great alternative to Twitter. Its announcement came as a surprise earlier this week and this Wednesday afternoon we had the opportunity to jump into this new social media from our Instagram accounts.
But what are the differences between Twitter and Instagram Threads? The truth is that Meta’s social network is very similar to the blue bird’s network, but there are some notable differences.
Here are the main differences between Instagram Threads and Twitter
First of all, Instagram Threads have a limit of 500 characters. In the case of Twitter, it’s 280 characters, but if you pay for the Blue service, this limit is eliminated. Or almost, because you can write up to 25,000 characters…
In the case of video, Instagram Threads allow you to post up to 5 minutes of content, while Twitter allows 2.20 minutes. Unless you are a Blue user, in which case you can upload up to 60 minutes of content.
A big difference between Instagram Threads and Twitter can be seen in the likes, since Meta’s social media allows you to hide them, but Elon Musk’s does not. For now, Instagram Threads seems to be beating Twitter in its free version. And so far, Meta hasn’t talked about a paid program, so we’ll see what they offer with a verified account.
Continuing with the differences between Instagram Threads and Twitter, we see that Elon Musk’s social media has some notable advantages. For starters, you can see trends and other topics of interest, while Threads only allow you to access your wall.
In addition, you can easily sign up for Twitter, while using Instagram Threads requires an Instagram account. Of course, your bio and followers are important for this new social network.
Twitter also has the option to filter a user’s feed by the accounts they follow, while Instagram Threads is more limited. Another benefit of Twitter over Instagram Threads is that you can save drafts, something that Meta’s new social media network does not currently allow. And you can’t see the likes of another Instagram Threads user.
As you can see, the difference between Twitter and Instagram Threads is quite noticeable, although aesthetically they look the same. Now you have to decide which one to choose: Meta’s solution or Elon Musk’s app.
