The CEO, who goes by the moniker “Zuck on Threads,” made the news on Wednesday night, July 5, in a flurry of postings and replies timed to coincide with the launch of his new app.

“10 million signups in seven hours,” Zuckerberg tweeted, accompanied by a “mindblown” emoji.

Earlier that day, he said that Threads had received two million registrations in the first two hours, followed by five million in the first four hours.

Threads is tied to Instagram, which Meta estimated had nearly two billion monthly active users in October.

Users can create Threads accounts using their Instagram identities and connect with others they follow on the image-based site.

“Our vision is to take the best parts of Instagram and create a new experience for text, ideas, and discussing what’s on your mind,” Zuckerberg stated in an Instagram post on Wednesday evening.


Threads’ introduction comes as Twitter, the most popular text-based social media tool, restricts free users from accessing more than 800 tweets per day and revamps its verification mechanism.

In 2022, soon before Elon Musk bought the network, Twitter projected that it had roughly 237.8 million daily active users.
