of course, journalists are leading the charge due in part because of how Instagram has already provided the instep-userbase. Most journos had already been using Instagram to source stories and post “quick hits” but sticking to Twitter/X as it’s a better discussion platform as far as GUI/UI/UX. Threads gives the best of all worlds since its basically “Instagram Comments+”
I personally marked about 80 more followers in the last 6 days on my account; brisk increases compared to the normal 3~4/week normally.
If Meta makes good on their ActivityPub/Fediverse promises, Threads would instantly (^.^) become the biggest instance.
