It’s one of the most eagerly-anticipated apps of the year, and now it seems that several celebrities have been given early access to Threads.
However, ahead of its global release, it appears that several celebrities have been given access.
Meanwhile, Meta’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg has also posted his first Thread, simply writing: ‘Let’s do this. Welcome to Threads.’
Threads is a free app that’s being described by Meta as a place where ‘communities come together’ to discuss topics through text – which sounds rather a lot like Twitter.
‘Threads is where communities come together to discuss everything from the topics you care about today to what’ll be trending tomorrow,’ the app description says.
‘Whatever it is you’re interested in, you can follow and connect directly with your favorite creators and others who love the same things – or build a loyal following of your own to share your ideas, opinions and creativity with the world.’
It will go live at 3pm GMT tomorrow, with anyone who already has an Instagram account set to be given a Threads account with the same username.
Ahead of the global launch, Meta has given several lucky celebrities early access to the app.
Chef Gordon Ramsay posted his first Thread, cheekily writing: ‘Is this where I find the lamb sauce??’
Meanwhile, singer Shakira simply opted to write: ‘Well hello Threads,’ along with a a waving hand emoji.
