When you sign up for Threads using your Instagram account, it automatically imports your profile pictures, bios, and followers from Instagram. However, Threads is also like Twitter in some ways. You can post short messages of up to 500 characters and add images, GIFs, and videos up to five minutes long. 

Moreover, if you like a post, you can give it a like or share it with others.

You can also control who can reply to your posts on Threads, and you can change your settings to make your account private at any time.
