Instagram’s Threads Is Already Live On The Web And Here’s Your First Look

First look!

Threads doesn’t launch for another 27 hours (midnight Friday AEST), but our first look at the brand new social media platform by Meta has arrived with some crafty people finding profiles online.

The likes of Netflix, Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, the Head of Instagram and even Kevin Jonas all have early access profiles visible on the web version of the platform. You can view those by clicking any of the above links.


It absolutely looks like Twitter, with people posting both text and image based posts and others replying (in a thread). You can repost each thread and share it over DM as well. When viewing someone’s profile specifically, you can see their threads as well as their replies to people.

It’s unclear if this is just due to the early access, but it appears that those names, handles and verification ticks do come across, but not follower account, unless this unlocks at launch on Friday.
