1. Follow Everyone You Follow on Instagram
When creating your account, you get prompted to follow everyone you have on Instagram. This seems to be the number one way people are getting followers currently.
As Instagram already have massive follower bases for their user account, this creates a fast path to market as a new microblogging media.
So, to continue, just click the “follow everyone” button.
Sidenote: Unlike Twitter, Threads does show how many people you follow in the app currently.
2. Create Great Posts or Steal Good Performing Posts From Twitter
So there are no hashtags on Threads currently, and there is no FYP (For you page).
Posts in the Threads feed are purely algorithmic. This means you must post good posts that create engagement to be pushed in the algo.
The hard way of doing this is to develop these posts yourself; the easy way is to steal good performing tweets in the niché of followers you want to grow and make threads about these same topics on Threads.
3. Add Photos or Gifs to All Posts
Adding color, moving images, etc., will make your posts stand out and grow your account more easily!
4. Trend Surf
Like most social media, ride on trends!
Right now, most people are new to Threads, and there is a massive brawl between Zuckerberg and Musk, with many people believing the recent reports of Twitter trying to sue Threads will lead to a “trial by combat” between the two tech billionaires.
Take advantage of this fuzz now and create content that will get traction on Threads; it’ll surely get you followers!

Make sure to follow and respond, react, and participate in discussions on threads; add value in this way, and your following will grow faster than you can say, MUSKERBERG!
