How to find your Threads ticket to show when you joined

You know a social media network is really starting to take off not by when executives say it's hit about 100 million users, but when inane memes and "challenges" start to hit the mainstream. The network in question is Threads — which at this point probably has become the de facto service for anyone looking to no longer sully themselves with Twitter (or X, or whatever). And the trend du jour is posting a skeuomorphic ticket that shows just how early you made it on to the Meta-owned platform.

What You Need

  • Your phone

  • The Threads app

The lower the number, the earlier you made it onto Threads in the initial rush following the surprise announcement that Meta was rolling it out sooner than expected. If you're looking to play along, or just don't remember where the ticket lives because you've had better things to do, we've got you covered. Here's how to get to it, post it, and then ponder the larger question of what your life has become.

How to find your Threads Ticket

First things first: Grab your phone and open the Threads app.

Step 1: Ignore the threads making fun of Twitter, or announcing how someone has left Twitter for Threads, or the ones about how big Threads is becoming. Select the Person icon in the bottom right to get to your profile tab.

Step 2: Now select the two-lined icon in the top right to open the Settings menu.

Step 3: Select About. (It's at the bottom of the list, just above Switch Profiles and Log Out. But don't tap those.)

Step 4: Now select About your profile.

Step 5: You'll now see a four line summary of your profile pop up from the bottom. It includes your name and handle and when you joined, along with your join number, what country you're based in, and if you're paying to be verified by Meta.

Step 6: This is fine, but you want the ticket so you can properly show off and be part of the "I know where to find my ticket club." So tap the Joined line and your ticket will open up.

And that's it. You now have a shiny ticket with the same information, as well as a QR code for folks to add you. Give it a spin for good measure, then screenshot it (the cool kids are screen recording it spinning), and post it to Threads.

You know you want to. And while you're doing it, give your pal Phil a follow.

How a tiny social media break can give you surprisingly big health benefits
Users addicted to their phones

Social media is not the healthiest recreational activity out there; I can personally vouch for that. Aside from a ton of independent research that has established a clear link between social media usage and a deteriorating graph of mental health, leading to depression, anxiety, bogus trends, and rampant misinformation are even known to spur self-harm tendencies among users.

To make matters worse, social media platforms don’t make it any easier. The algorithms lean on the addictive side of online content consumption and try to keep users hooked with an endless barrage of interest-based recommendations. For a lot of users, that translates to hours lying idle and doom-scrolling on their phone screens.

Pricing options in the Snapchat app on an iPhone.

As Twitter continues to flirt with the idea of being a paid social media app, many are turning to other apps like Snapchat in search of free content and a free way to connect with friends online. Unfortunately, Snapchat doesn't make it entirely clear if it's a free or paid experience — resulting in some confusion for new users.

Snapchat is one of the most popular social media apps today, allowing its users the ability to connect with one another instantly and capture and save precious moments in photos and videos. It's a great app for those wanting to stay connected, but with the recent launch of Snapchat Plus, users are left scratching their heads, wondering if they can continue using Snapchat for free.
