Instagram director Adam Mosseri said on Thursday that the text social media platform Threads has become supportive of “quoting” posts on the web.
Threads was launched in early July with the aim of pulling the rug out of the X platform, the new official name for Twitter, which has suffered a lot of chaos since billionaire Elon Musk acquired it in late October for $44 billion.
Although Threads was a simple start, lacking many of the features that X offers, it was a huge success, attracting more than 100 million records in its first week.
Since the launch of Threads, Meta has been keen to add new features almost every week, and last August launched the long-awaited web version.
But the web version of Threads came without the important feature of quoting posts, as it only allowed republication without commenting on posts.
To quote a post, just click on the arrow icon and click on the quote option.
Mosseri also said mobile users can now follow a thread and get notifications when a new post is added in the series.
It is noteworthy that Threads, which is described as an “application for Instagram”, has received over the past days a number of updates, such as: blocking search for sensitive topics, and the feature of searching in publications.
The Threads app for Android mobile devices can be downloaded from the Google Play Store, and for iOS devices from Apple’s App Store. The service can also be accessed via the web.
