Twitter vs Threads Meme
Threads by Instagram is similar but different than Twitter. That said, it is out to compete with the tweets. Here’s a collection of funny Twitter vs Threads memes.
Twitter users who are on the app all day every day and then try out Threads this is for you. This funny Instagram Threads app is what a lot of Twitter users are feeling like. It’s a new home, not a lot going on yet and the constant stream of tweets isn’t there.
Will Twitter go belly up with the launch of Threads? I mean, the Twitter office in Boulder is fighting eviction. This funny Twitter logo meme may just become a reality, but it won’t be META who does it.
Threads Logo Meme
This is the Threads logo. Look hard, what does this look like to you?
I didn’t see it either, but apparently it’s a thread. Though as this threads meme shows the logo looks like squiggles, Homer Simpson’s ear or perhaps a mis-sliced pizza.
Logo design is my passion.
Funny Thread Meme
It’s the early days for the Threads app, but Backstreet Boys have nailed their entrance into the Threadverse. “We’re back again” is how BSB does an intro.
Twitter Bots Meme
One thing we all hate about Twitter is the bots. Here’s a funny Twitter bot meme about what’s really up with the bots now that there is a new platform to troll.
Joining Threads by Instagram Meme
To join or not to join is the question. And if you do, will you finally say good bye to Twitter or did you do that a while ago. Speaking of, we have Quitting Facebook memes for those who said bye to FB.
If you do join Thread, will your feed and profile be the exact as your Twitter account?
Yet another social media account to manage, thanks Meta!
Threads vs Twitter Meme
This Margot Robbie Threads vs Twitter meme is spot on. A little evil on Twitter, but Threads is an Instagram like product so instead of Harley Quinn, you are Barbie. See our Barbie memes!
Nah Twitter, yay Threads. Maybe, time will tell.
This RIP Twitter meme is just too funny not to share.
What is Threads?
Billed as the friendly version of Twitter. Here’s the exact Mark Zuckerberg quote from the birds mouth (or should I say wad of string’s mouth?)
The vision for Threads is to create an open and friendly public space for conversation. We hope to take what Instagram does best and create a new experience around text, ideas, and discussing what’s on your mind. source: @Zuck via Threads
We did Elon Musk memes a while back when he bought Twitter – so we knew we had to introduce you the the new Threads app from Mark Zuckerberg and the META team.

Features of Threads App
Wondering what the advantage to using the Threads app vs Twitter. Let’s look at the Threads features that you will want to know about.
One of the most anticipated Threads features is the new social media app lets users to message Instagram’s close friends as well as share photos and videos directly to your feed.
Messages will be sync’d between Threads and Instagram. Threads allows users to message Instagram’s “Close Friends,” a customizable list of people designated by the user.
The other major Threads app feature is called “Auto Status” which allows you to set a precise location to show your friend where are you are. This not only allows your friends to know where you are but advertisers too. Though META/Facebook says that they won’t use precise location information for auto status for ads, we shall see.
Data Collected by Threads
This Threads meme is circulating via Tweet ironically posted by Jack, Twitter’s founder and former CEO. If you are interested in what data collection Threads app will have access to, here you go.
There are 4 more access points than Twitter receives – but those data points are kind of critical.
Here are the 4 additional data links that the Threads app collects that Twitter does not.
- Financial info
- Health and fitness
- Sensitive info
- Other data
I wanna know if Threads be tracking my cycle for me, letting my friends know via “auto status” what’s going on? I’m kidding – kind of sort of.
We all give a LOT of data away, more than 99% of us know. So while yes, it is concerning – it is unfortunately the norm now.
The data is used for an array of things, mostly to feed the social media algorithm monster which delivers you relevant content and ads.
Followers on Threads
What makes Threads different than other social media profiles, if you have an Instagram following – you already have a built-in audience.
So while Threads is new, you can retain and grow your audience with your current “fan” base.
Mark Zuckerberg Memes
Listen Zuck – it’s nothing personal. While I do appreciate META, we love our Oculus Quest 2 and Instagram is my therapy – there’s just something that doesn’t sit right with me.
And it’s not just Mark, Elon who we use to admire has just kind of gone too big in the head for my liking. Yes, we own a Tesla – no we don’t like evil. This Mark Zuckerberg meme of him sewing with thread (hence the Threads by Instagram app) slays.
So Enjoy the Mark Zuckerberg memes, and yes – if the boxing match between Elon and Mark ever happens – I’ll watch.
