Meta launched Threads on July 5 for iOS and Android users in 100 countries, and it is currently among the top free apps on the App Store.

Announcing the 100 million user sign-ups on Threads, Meta Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Monday said: “Threads reached 100 million sign-ups over the weekend. That’s mostly organic demand and we haven’t even turned on many promotions yet. Can’t believe it’s only been 5 days!”

On the other hand, Instagram head Adam Mosseri said: “I’m not sure I can wrap my mind around that fact. It’s insane; I can’t make sense of it.”

The new app crossed 2 million sign-ups in just two hours after launch, 10 million users in seven hours, and 30 million in just 12 hours.
