    Threads just launched as a Twitter competitor. Meanwhile, Twitter has gone private so you need to log in to view your website's profiles (which means the recent tweet data for a Google search of your site's name may be gone for good).


    Have any of you jumped on the bandwagon yet and made a social profile for your site on Threads or is it too early to be used as a way to drive traffic to your website?

    I have a profile and have posted a few things to it but haven't got much engagement.

    Because Threads' feed is "global" and not inherently based on your follower graph, it seems like the only stuff that really gets a strong reach on there is very general topics, like memes, engaging questions, or funny videos. So it feels a more like TikTok for text than it does Twitter or Facebook.

    it's definitely a younger demographic of users for sure :) Looking forward when new features give it a better Twitter functionality :D
