The new app, called “Threads, an Instagram app”, will be available in the coming days, and has been described in the Apple App Store [Apple Store] as an “Instagram app for text conversations”.

“Threads is where communities converge to talk about everything, whether it’s the topics they care about or the future trends,” the app’s description across the app stores said.

The application will also allow, according to the description, “to communicate directly with favorite content makers and those who share the same passion, or to build a special base for sharing ideas, opinions and creativity with the whole world.”
