Threads arrived earlier this week, and people registered with their Instagram username, as the Twitter alternative is powered by photo-centric social media. However, many discovered that you cannot delete the account on Threads once created; you can only disable it. Deleting the Threads username will also automatically apply to the Instagram profile, erasing everything.
Adam Mosseri, Head of Instagram, revealed Meta is aware of the issue and is working on a workaround and suggested users to deactivate their account for now.
Threads allows users to post text-based messages, videos, short GIFs and embed Instagram posts in threads. They can also like, comment, repost, and share posts, but many other features are still missing. Deactivation of the account would hide the profile and any content published, and users can also decide to go private.
The executive said Threads is powered by Instagram, and that’s why users are using just one account. They will soon be able to use a more robust search, and we expect to see hashtags, curated tabs and editing tools for attachments before being published.
There’s also the issue of Threads not being GDPR-compliant for now, meaning people in the European Union cannot use social media. They could go for a VPN solution, but that would compromise their data if they go through a country with weaker privacy laws.

Meta was fined 1.2 billion euros ($1.3 billion) by the Irish Data Protection Commission for breaching the EU's data privacy rules, the General Data Protection Regulation. GDPR So I live in the UK, put simply when you collect Data from EU…
Get Thread (any meta app actually) aka give money to meta with all of your data they sell to advertisers ! Enjoy losing your privacy, again.
Threads is utter crap. Heavy reckless moderation (they're outright banning accounts who say things they dislike). They're scraping too much data from it's users, and asking every permission in the book (as below users have pointed out)…
