Welcome back! Threads is a new application developed by Meta, the same company that’s created Instagram, FaceBook, WhatsApp, and a lot more applications as well! So, let’s take a look at some of the programming languages that were used to create this new application!


Without a doubt, the Meta team definitely used Javascript and/or Typescript in order to build out their new Threads application, the reason being? Meta also is the owner of the React framework, this is a Javascript library for UI development, and since Threads also has a website counterpart, chances are, they used Javascript and/or Typescript to build out some of their Threads application.


Next up we have Python, this is a massively popular programming language that can build out applications like Threads! Now, Python is very versatile, and there are tons of packages and frameworks that can help you build out a ton of applications with this language!

Swift is one of the most important languages for iOS development, and since Threads also has an iOS application counterpart, chances are, the Meta team used Swift specifically for their Threads iOS application.

From what I can see, those are probably the programming languages that Meta had used to develop out their Threads application, what languages do you think Meta used for this app? I would love to hear your thoughts about this!
