So is a put up on Threads referred to as a ‘Thread’ or a ‘put up’? And what about re-posts – are they ‘re-threads’?
It’s all a bit up within the air in the meanwhile, within the (very) early days of the brand new Twitter-esque app, however that will help you with the most recent lingo, the Threads workforce has shared a ‘Threads Dictionary’ to maintain you on top of things.
So, to make clear:
- Every dialogue is named a thread – so that you put up a thread within the app
- A put up is a person factor inside a thread (although some individuals are additionally referring to this as ‘threading’ or ‘stitching’)
- A shared thread is named a repost – not a ‘re-thread’ or another variation
- Sharing another person’s put up is a quote thread
It’s all fairly simple, there’s no new language to study, as such. However there may be going to be some dialogue round what the precise act of threading must be – with even that adverb being a misinterpretation, primarily based on this ‘dictionary’.
And if Threads turns into a factor (it’s already as much as 48 million profiles), perhaps that terminology evolves once more, and we’ll find yourself seeing totally different appropriations of the title, morphing it into technically incorrect kinds.
However proper now, Meta’s trying to preserve issues clear, and in step with what makes probably the most sense.
Which, while you’re attempting to win over extra customers, might be the very best method.
You possibly can keep updated with the most recent Threads lingo by way of the Threads Instagram profile, or by following the Threads account within the app.
