Casey Newton (@crumbler)

Known for his in-depth analysis and investigative reporting, Casey Newton (@crumbler) has become a trusted voice in the tech industry, as shown by his conversations with industry leaders like Instagram CEO Adam Mosseri.

Casey’s threads are characterized by insightful (and funny) commentary on current tech trends and issues. He often takes screenshots of portions of his own newsletter and shares them to Threads with a little summary or some context as the caption.

It works great for driving discussion around the ideas shared in that specific section and probably for driving traffic to his external content as well.

💡
Learn from Casey: If you have content you’re making outside of Threads, cut it up and add a little additional context. This doesn’t have to be just a newsletter — clips from your YouTube videos or even just cross-posting your Reels can fill up your content calendar nicely.

Sierra Nicole (@the_sierranicole)

I find Sierra Nicole’s (@the_sierranicole) content particularly interesting. She focuses on books (reading and sharing reviews of them) and personal branding.

What makes this combination interesting is that she also features a lot of fiction, when most other similar creators might only share content that aligns explicitly with their existing pillars.

A lot of Sierra’s content also revolves around sharing stories – those of hers and others. You can see her love of literature and storytelling in the way she structures her posts, and her audience seems to resonate with her style.

Rita Iglesias (@rita_codes) is a software engineer who shares a blend of humorous and tech-related videos that resonate with a wide audience.

An interesting aspect of her Threads strategy is that she simply cross-posts the videos she’s already shared on TikTok and Instagram Reels to her feed, but she's given them a new life on Threads.

She gets massive engagement on the platform and has reached thousands of new people.
