Yeah, social media sucks. But it doesn’t have to.

Thread is a private, ad-free social network that finds you great content and helps creators get paid. Now in open beta.

Why does the world need another social app?

Because the ones we have are built for advertisers, not people.

They’re making us less informed and less empathetic. More outrageous and more outraged. They’re cheapening the truth and driving its defenders out of business – so they can make a profit in the margins.

Thread isn’t for creepy ads. It’s definitely not for bots. It’s not for data brokers or microtargeting, harassment or trolling, clickbait or fake news.

We’re building Thread for you. Join the beta now on the App Store.

Do you make cool stuff on the internet?

We're working with journalists, writers, artists, musicians, and content creators to build a sustainable and fair business model for social media.

Let’s be friends.
