Threads has been working on delivering new product functionality as quickly as possible.

More than 10 million people have signed up to Threads, Meta's rival to Twitter, within the first few hours of its launch, the company's CEO Mark Zuckerberg said July 6. The app went live on Apple and Android app stores in 100 countries at 2300 GMT on July 5, 2023, and will run with no ads for now, but its release in Europe has been delayed over data privacy concerns.

Users can now pose a question with up to four answer choices – the poll will run for 24 hours and users can control who can respond to the poll, the same way many can control who can reply to a post. In addition, users have to vote to see current results – and once users vote, many will be notified when the poll ends to see the final results and join the conversation.

Threads has emphasized that it has been listening to its creator audience and building more features to improve the experience.
