Lopez is a popular mainstay on whatever social media platform she chooses to pursue and the same went for Threads. Much like its counterpart, the app allows users to publish posts that can be liked and reposted, as well as commented on. Although a direct message feature is not available yet, Zuckerberg revealed that the app had 10 million sign-ups in seven hours. One of them was, of course, Jennifer Lopez.
