Instagram Threads is now official. A social network that comes to become a great alternative to Twitter. And although it is true that the EU has banned this app in Europe for not complying with privacy regulations.
But what are the differences between Twitter and Instagram Threads? The Meta social network is similar to the Bluebird social network, but we found several notable changes.
These are the main differences between Instagram Threads and Twitter
For starters, Instagram Threads have a 500-character limit. In the case of Twitter, it is 280 characters, but if you pay for the Blue service, this restriction is removed. Or almost, because you can write 25,000 characters…
In the case of videos, on Instagram Threads, you can post content up to 5 minutes long, while on Twitter 2.20 minutes. Unless you are a Blue user, you can upload up to 60 minutes of long content.
We see a big difference between Instagram Threads and Twitter in the Likes since Meta’s social network allows you to hide them, but Elon Musk’s does not. Instagram Threads now surpasses Twitter in its free version. And at the moment, Meta has yet to talk about a payment program, so we will see what they offer with a verified account.
Continuing with the differences between Instagram Threads and Twitter, we see that Elon Musk’s social network has some notable advantages. For starters, you can see the trends and other topics of interest, while Threads only allows you to access the wall.
Also, you can easily sign up for Twitter, whereas to use Instagram Threads, you must have an Instagram account. Of course, you care about the biography and followers of this new social network.
Twitter also has the option to filter a user’s feed by accounts they follow, while Instagram Threads is more limited. Another advantage of Twitter compared to Instagram Threads is that you can save drafts, which the new Meta social network does not allow now. And you also can’t see the likes of another Instagram Threads user.
As you will see, the difference between Twitter and Instagram Threads is quite remarkable, although aesthetically speaking, they look like clones. Now, you must decide which one you prefer, the Meta solution or the Elon Musk app.
