What is Threads?
Threads is a standalone app from Meta (formerly Facebook) that allows you to send quick messages and photos to your close friends. It's designed to be a more intimate and personal way to communicate than other social media platforms.
How does Threads threaten Twitter?
Threads could pose a threat to Twitter in a few ways. First, it's a direct competitor to Twitter's Direct Messages feature. Threads offers a number of advantages over DMs, such as the ability to see when your friends are online and the ability to send disappearing messages.
Second, Threads could cannibalize Twitter's user base. If people start using Threads to communicate with their close friends, they may be less likely to use Twitter for the same purpose.
How to delete Threads account
If you decide you no longer want to use Threads, you can delete your account. Here's how:
- Open the Threads app.
- Tap the three dots in the top right corner.
- Tap Account.
- Tap Deactivate profile.
- Enter your password and tap Deactivate.
Note: Deactivating your Threads account will not delete your data. Your data will be stored by Meta for a period of time, but you will no longer be able to access it.
Here are some additional things to keep in mind when deleting your Threads account:
- You can only deactivate your account once a week.
- If you delete your Threads account, you will also delete your Threads data, including your messages, photos, and contacts.
- If you have any pending messages in Threads, they will be deleted when you deactivate your account.
