After months of waiting, Threads has finally added the ability to have tag in your post, but the feature doesn’t work like Twitter.
Well, we knew this day was coming. While some of us loved the idea of a social network free of them altogether, no social media company can resist the urge to add a feature that has become synonymous with the existence of any social app: hashtags.
Today, Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri took to Threads to officially announce that the company is starting to roll out support for hashtags on Threads. The rollout is starting today and immediately, so you can expect to start seeing tags on posts pop up all across your feed.

However, for all of us who were accustomed to how hashtags worked on Twitter (where hashtags cemented in popularity all of those eons ago), tags on Threads will work quite differently compared to other social networks.
According to Mosseri, adding a tag on a post on Threads will happen through a new option when creating a post rather than through typing “#” as we are all used to.
